Surrey RCMP are looking for two cars in connection with an assault and a shooting

SURREY — Police are looking for a black Honda Accord following an assault in Newton late Tuesday morning.

Surrey RCMP Corporal Scotty Schumann said police received a report of an assault in the 6600-block of 124A Street at about 11:45 a.m.

“Officers determined that an altercation had occurred between two occupants of the home and two suspects who attempted to enter the residence,” he said. The fight spilled out onto the street where neighbours grabbed one man and held him until police arrived. The other took off in the car.

Schumann said the two residents and suspect were taken to hospital to be treated for injuries not life-threatening.

“Early indications are that this is a targeted incident,” Schumann said. “A description of the second suspect is unavailable at this time.”

Photographer Shane MacKichan said it appeared to have been a botched robbery with one of the culprits being beaten down with a baseball bat.

Meanwhile, police are also looking for a black Hyundai Tucson SUV in connection with a shooting in Newton on April 4, near 86A Avenue and 140th Street.  A man was shot but his wound wasn’t life-threatening.

“Although this appears to have been a targeted incident, police believe that the person who was wounded was actually the victim of a case of mistaken identity,” Schumann said. “With the released of these new details, we are hoping someone will come forward with more information regarding the suspect vehicle or people associated to it.”

Police are asking anyone with information in either case to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
