Stabbing in 12th Street apartment investigated

New Westminster police are investigating a stabbing incident after a victim showed up at a Surrey hospital Wednesday evening.

A 23-year-old New Westminster resident appeared in provincial court Thursday charged in a stabbing Wednesday evening.

The victim showed up at a Surrey hospital needing treatment. During an initial investigation, Surrey RCMP discovered the stabbing had taken place in an apartment in the 400 block of 12th Street in New Westminster so they notified the city’s police department. The NWPD went to the apartment and arrested a suspect without incident.

The New West major crime unit has taken over the investigation and while a motive had not been determined, the attack is not believe to have been random or gang related said a NWPD spokesman.

Charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and breach of probation is Jeffrey Rene Innes.

Police said the victim remains in hospital in serious condition.
