Man suffering knife wound to neck hails cab in Newton

SURREY — A man tried to hail a cab after getting stabbed in the neck early Wednesday morning in Newton.

Surrey RCMP Staff Sgt. Murray Hedderson said the man was bleeding “quite badly” from a small stab wound below his ear when he got into the taxi, in the 7400-block of 121A Street, at 1:50 a.m.

Police responding to a 911 call found the victim walking away from the cab when they arrived at the scene, and he was taken to hospital.

“The male is supplying few details of the incident and was not being fully cooperative with police,” Hedderson said. “The male’s injury is not life-threatening.”

Police are asking witnesses to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
