Police investigate two stabbings in Surrey and North Delta

SURREY and DELTA — Two men were seriously injured in separate stabbings in Surrey and North Delta this past weekend.

Delta Police Sgt. Sarah Swallow said three boys under the age of 18 were arrested and are facing charges of aggravated assault after an 18-year-old man suffered “significant multiple stab wounds” during a fight behind Burnsview Secondary School, in the 7600-block of 112th Street, shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday

Swallow said the three were “attempting to flee the area” when they were arrested. Their names cannot be published because their identities are shielded by the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

“Investigators are confident that there is no connection between the fight and the school,” she said. “The victim and the suspects are known to each other and this appears to be an isolated incident — a fight between teenagers that unfortunately escalated to this extreme level.”

The victim is in critical but stable condition in hospital and the suspects are being held in custody.

Meantime, a 31-year-old man was stabbed in the Byrd Pub in Whalley’s Flamingo Hotel early Sunday morning and the Surrey RCMP is looking for two suspects.

The stabbing happened at 1:35 a.m., at 10768 King George Boulevard. Staff Sgt. Murray Hedderson said the man was stabbed in the gut and taken to hospital by ambulance in serious condition.

Police are also looking for three men after a 20-year-old Surrey man was dropped off at the District 1 police station in Whalley suffering from a wound to the head. He was taken to hospital for stitches. This was at about 4.20 a.m. Sgt. Paul Hayes said the victim told police he’d been assaulted in the area of 105A Avenue and 107A Street. Other than that, Hayes said, the victim “wasn’t very forthcoming.”
