A police video showing a motorcyclist speeding through the streets of Surrey, B.C., before heading inside a mall and riding across a pedestrian overpass was accidentally released and subsequently uploaded to YouTube.

The video, released by Live Leak and uploaded to YouTube on March 13, cuts between police helicopter and cruiser footage and surveillance footage from inside the Guildford mall.

The video shows several people moving out of the way of the motorcycle as it plunges down an escalator and through a set of sliding doors. Security guards can be seen running in pursuit.

Helicopter footage shows the motorcyclist leaving the mall and riding across an overpass, as two pedestrians jump out the way.

The video ends with a shot of the motorcycle, which bears stickers supporting the Hells Angels.

The rider's face has been blurred in the video footage.

Police have confirmed that the video was created by an investigator and are looking into how it became public.

Surrey RCMP posted a news release about the Feb. 20 incident, noting that they had been informed of a motorcyclist riding dangerously around 1.50 p.m. PT that day.

They said the suspect was described as a white male in his 40s.
