SURREY — Police are investigating two stabbings that happened precisely 24 hours apart in Newton and Whalley.

The first happened on New Year’s Eve, at 10:45 p.m., in the 7000-block of 123B Street in Newton.

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann said men were heard yelling at one another before a 47-year-old man was stabbed in the torso. He was taken to hospital and is expected to recover.

“This was a targeted attack,” Schumann said. Police are still looking for a suspect.

The second stabbing happened at 10:45 p.m. on New Year’s Day, in the 14500-block of 104th Avenue in Whalley.

A 23-year-old Surrey man was stabbed during a fight inside a house. He was taken to hospital and is expected to recover. Schumann said police arrested a 30-year-old Surrey man roughly an hour later and a block away from the stabbing scene.

Schumann said the victim and suspect knew each other but were not related.
