ANOTHER man from North Vancouver has been charged with taking part in last summer's Stanley Cup hockey riot.

Jacob Pateman, 18, was charged Wednesday with participating in a riot and break and enter in connection with the riot that broke out after the Vancouver Canucks were defeated by the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals on June 15 last year.

Pateman is the second person from North Vancouver to be charged in connection with the riot. The other man, Matthew Cottrell, has a court appearance scheduled for next week.

Police have recommended charges against two more people from North Vancouver, but those charges have not yet been approved.

In total, Crown counsel has now approved 129 charges of the 278 recommended by police. Altogether 47 alleged rioters have been charged.

According to police, the average age of those they are recommending riot charges against is 21. Most are from suburban areas in the Lower Mainland.
