Updated: Surrey RCMP still looking for three burglars after Surrey man was stabbed in his home

They also stole the victim's 2005 white Mini Cooper, which was later found abandoned in the 13800-block of 104th Avenue in Whalley.

Burglars attacked a Surrey man inside his home in Clayton early Wednesday morning

SURREY — A 57-year-old Surrey man is recovering after being stabbed in the chest while confronting burglars inside his Clayton home early Wednesday morning.

Two days later, police are still looking for the burglars. They took off in the victim’s 2005 white Mini Cooper, which was later found abandoned in the 13800-block of 104th Avenue in Whalley.

The break-in happened at about 4:30 a.m., in the 19100-block of 62A Avenue.

Police ask anyone with information to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

Meanwhile, the alleged killer of Surrey realtor Colin Hill, who was shot dead in his Cloverdale home last year while trying to protect his family from a late-night burglar in the 16500-block of 64th Avenue, will next appear in court on June 24.

Khouri Lamar Green, 22, is charged with second-degree murder.

At the time, Hill’s grieving wife, Becky Zhou, posted a message on Facebook indicating he tried to stop the gunman from breaking in but “lost (the) battle holding the door.” She wrote that her husband “yelled out to the family to hide” and then led the gunman outside “to give time to the family to hide.

Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner said shortly after Hill’s death that “there are no words to express my outrage for this senseless loss of life.

“Should he be found guilty,” she said of the accused, “I sincerely hope that the courts will see fit to punish him to the full extent of the law for this heinous and senseless crime.”
