Man arrested in stabbing at Surrey elementary school

A 34-year-old man has been arrested in relation to the stabbing of a woman at Royal Heights Elementary school.



A Surrey school was locked down after a woman was assaulted with a small knife.

At about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Surrey RCMP were called a domestic assault at Royal Heights Elementary school, near 116 Avenue and 96 Avenue.

Investigators were told that a man had just stabbed a woman known to him.

A man was arrested at the scene and a knife was recovered.

The woman suffered minor injuries as a result of the attack.

“For obvious safety reasons, the school was in lock-down for a few minutes, until we could confirm the safety of the students and that the suspect was in custody.” said Cpl. Bert Paquet of the Surrey RCMP. “Students were never threatened or at risk during this targeted incident between two adults.”

A 34-year-old Surrey man is now in custody. Charges have not been finalized, as officers continue to investigate.

Any potential witness to this assault is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
