Fight involving knife at Surrey banquet hall sends five people to hospital

Police say one of victims is elderly woman who was knocked down during fight at large family function in Surrey

SURREY — Five people, including an elderly woman, were taken to hospital after Surrey RCMP say a fight broke out at a Surrey banquet hall Friday night.

Police say four of the victims were stabbed. None of the injuries are life-threatening.

The elderly woman was hurt after being knocked down during the fight, police say. Her injuries included a broken arm.

It all happened just before midnight at a banquet hall in the 12000 Block of Nordel Way. Police say a fight at the large family function started inside and spilled out into the parking lot. Once outside, police say, one of the people involved in the fight took out a knife.

RCMP say all of the persons involved in the fight know each other and had been invited to the family function. Police have yet to identify a suspect and are talking to witnesses. They are also looking to find possible video footage of the fight.

Police ask anyone who may have seen the fight or saw people leaving the banquet hall are asked to call 604-599-0502 or to call Crime Stoppers.
