Man found bloody on Surrey streets after alleged stabbing over online photo

NEWTON — Police say a 24-year-old man was found covered in blood in Surrey Thursday afternoon near 88th Avenue and 128th Street after an alleged assault over an online photo.

It’s believed the man was stabbed during a dispute over a photo the suspect saw picturing a girlfriend or ex-girlfriend with the victim, according to police.

@MattVanDeventer tweeted he saw a bloody white man running along 88th Avenue with “blood coming from his face and all over his hands.”

He added, “He seemed to be running from something.”

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said a patrol officer “located him bloodied and stopped to provide assistance.”

The victim was taken to hospital where he was treated for cuts and stab wounds to his arms, hands, neck and nose.

“Some small cuts, some larger cuts, kind of all over,” said Paquet.

The suspect was arrested in front of a house in the area and has not yet been charged. Police said he will likely face charges related to drugs, firearms as well as aggravated assault.

Both men are known to police.

The victim was set to be released from hospital a few hours after being admitted.
