Surrey RCMP released this photo of a suspect in 'road rage' assault in Newton on May 8.

Surrey RCMP is investigating a serious assault that occurred in Newton that may be the result of road rage.

On Sunday, May 8 at 3:30 p.m., the Surrey RCMP received several calls from witnesses reporting what appeared to be a “road rage” incident in the 12100-block of 72 Avenue involving two vehicles.

At one point, police say the 38-year-old victim was punched by the suspect in a parking lot. The suspect then attacked the victim a second time, this time stabbing him. The victim collapsed from his injuries and the suspect was last seen going northbound on foot in the 12100-block of 75 Avenue.

The male suspect is described as having dark hair, dark beard, wearing black shoes, blue jeans and a white tank top (see photo above).

The suspect’s vehicle is described as a grey Mazda 3 hatchback.

“What started as a simple traffic incident quickly escalated into a life-threatening situation for the victim,” said Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “When faced with a ‘road rage,’ incident, stay calm and call police when it’s safe and you’re able to pull over.”

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or
