SURREY – A man tried to hail a cab after getting stabbed in the neck early Wednesday morning in Newton.
Surrey RCMP Staff Sgt. Murray Hedderson said the man was bleeding "quite badly" from a small stab wound below his ear when he got into the taxi, in the 7400-block of 121A Street, at 1:50 a.m. Police responding to a 911 call found the victim walking away from the cab when they arrived at the scene, and he was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The victim is supplying few details of the incident and is not being fully cooperative, Hedderson said Tuesday.
Police are asking witnesses to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
