WHALLEY – Surrey Mounties are searching for a stabbing victim after a blood trail led them to a Whalley apartment Saturday morning.
Cpl. Bert Paquet said police received a call about a stabbing in the 9900-block of Whalley Boulevard at about 10 a.m. The victim apparently got into a car and left. Following a blood trail to an apartment nearby, police found two men and a woman in the suite and detained them for questioning. Paquet said the investigation revealed two men had been in a fight at the apartment. "This was targeted, no threat to the public," he said, adding the stabbing "appears to be drug related. Everyone involved that has been identified is known to police."
The RCMP later located a 21-year-old Coquitlam man near the scene, with a minor wound to his hand.
"A possible outstanding suspect might have suffered injuries in the altercation as well," Paquet said. He is described as South Asian or Hispanic, and has tattoos.
