Stolen bong causes fight, ends in stabbing

Charges coming against a 16-year-old boy who stabbed a Langley boy, 18, at an outdoor party at James Kennedy Elementary on Friday night.

An argument over a stolen bong led to a fight and one teen stabbing another at James Kennedy Elementary school grounds Friday night.

Twice on Oct. 11, Langley RCMP were called to James Kennedy to deal with a group of youths. Police were first called around 8 p.m. when local residents called to say a large group had gathered on the school grounds.  When police arrived, the group scattered, said Cpl. Holly Marks.

The second time police were called to attend for a ‘huge fight’ and apparently someone had been stabbed, said Marks.

When police arrived they found an 18-year-old had been stabbed in the back, allegedly by a 16-year-old Surrey youth after an argument over a stolen bong, said police.

After the initial argument about the bong, it’s alleged the 16-year-old brandished a knife and was tackled by the Langley teen.

As the 18-year-old punched the younger man in the head, he was stabbed in the back, police said.

Once the group realized what had happened, they began chasing the boy with the knife. Police arrived and arrested the Surrey teen.

He has been released to appear in court at a later date. Police will recommend a charge of assault with a weapon to Crown Counsel. The teen’s name will not be released because he is a youth.
