Newton stabbing suspect

SURREY — Surrey Mounties are investigating two stabbings over the past weekend, in Whalley and Newton.

The most recent was on Sunday at about 5:30 p.m., and apparently stemmed from a road-rage attack in the 12100-block of 72nd Avenue.

Police found a 38-year-old man in the 12100-block of 75th Avenue. He’d been stabbed and was taken to hospital in stable condition but with life-threatening injuries.

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

The attacker has dark hair, a dark beard, wore black shoes, blue jeans and a white tank top. He drove a grey Mazda 3 hatchback. Schumann said the victim was punched in the face in a parking lot.

“The suspect then attacked the victim a second time, this time stabbing him,” Schumann said. “The victim collapsed from his injuries and the suspect was seen northbound on foot in the 12100-block of 75th Avenue.”

Police are asking for witnesses to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

On Friday, at about 11:30 p.m., a man was found stabbed at the Gateway SkyTrain Station in Whalley. The Surrey RCMP found him on the platform, with several stab wounds to his torso.

It reportedly took 30 minutes for an ambulance to arrive to take him to hospital.

Cpl. Scotty Schumann said it’s not known at what location the victim was stabbed as he refused to cooperate with police, his injuries were relatively minor and that he ended up checking himself out of hospital without being treated.
