Photo released of suspect in Surrey cabbie attack

Taxi driver was stabbed several times, but luckily escaped without serious injury

Police have released a photo of a man they believe is responsible for an attack on a taxi driver in Whalley last month.

On June 21, at about 5:30 a.m., Surrey Mounties were called by a taxi driver who was in the 13300-block of 105A Avenue.

The cabbie said he picked up a fare near 108 Avenue and 144 Street. He said he was assaulted by the man, who produced a knife, stabbing the taxi driver in the arm and the hand.

The suspect took the taxi driver’s wallet, cash and cell phone and then fled.

The taxi driver got out of his cab bleeding and was assisted by people in the area.

He was treated in hospital and released.

Police are looking for a man (see photo) described as slender, with a dark complexion, wearing black pants and a black hoodie.

Anyone with information about this incident 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.
