UPDATE: Surrey man charged after serious stabbing in Richmond

Victim stabbed on Williams Road following earlier verbal altercation

Richmond Mounties responded to a stabbing shortly after noon on Wednesday in the 5000 block of Williams Road.

A Surrey man has now been charged with aggravated assault after a 46-year-old man was stabbed Wednesday afternoon in Richmond.

The victim, from Richmond, suffered multiple stab wounds around 12:30 p.m. and was rushed to hospital in serious condition. He was stabbed as he was preparing to mow his lawn on the 5000 block of Williams Road, near No. 2 Road, police said.

The victim and the suspect were allegedly involved in a disturbance near the victim’s home Wednesday morning.

Before police arrived, the suspect fled the scene in a silver Mercedes Benz. But later Wednesday afternoon, he was spotted returning to Richmond by patrol officers.

“The vehicle was followed until a tactical vehicle stop could be conducted,” Richmond RCMP Cpl. Dennis Hwang said.

Charged is 35-year-old Jason Curtiss Billing.
