Man stabbed on bus

Police have arrested one man suspected of stabbing another on a bus in North Surrey.

A man has been arrested after the stabbing of a man on a bus near the King George SkyTrain Station.

Surrey RCMP responded to a call for help at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday (Sept. 12), after reports of a violent altercation on a bus at 100 Avenue and King George Boulevard.

When they arrived, Mounties found a stabbing victim.

He was taken to hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

A suspect was found nearby and arrested without incident. He was taken to hospital with minor injuries, believed to have been sustained during the stabbing.

As of Thursday afternoon, police were canvassing the area and speaking with passengers on the transit bus to obtain further information.

As the investigation is in the early stages, it is still unclear if the parties knew each other or what the altercation was about.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
