St Patrick’s Day Stabbing
(SURREY, BC) – Just after 11:00 pm on Saturday March 17, 2012, Surrey RCMP responded to a 911 in the 10800 block of 168 Street from a male claiming he had been stabbed. Police and EHS attended the area however the victim was not immediately located.
Several minutes later a call was received from a male in a residence in the 11000 block of 168 Street requesting police attend for an apparent attack on the tenant in the basement suite.
Surrey RCMP, Lower Mainland District Emergency Response Team (LMDERT) and Lower Mainland District Police Dog Service (LMDPDS) attended to the call and located an injured male inside a residence in the 11000 block of 168 Street. The male was suffering from head wounds and what appeared to be the effects of bear spray. He was transported to hospital by BC Ambulance Service (BCAS) and has since been released.
Evidence inside the residence suggested a significant struggle took place and a blood trail led officers to a nearby location where an unresponsive male was located. BCAS tended to this and he was ultimately pronounced deceased at the scene.
