Surrey stabbing sends 2 teens to hospital
Two young people are in hospital after being stabbed in Surrey on Thursday morning.
Surrey RCMP say it happened in a strip mall parking lot near 148th Street and 108th Avenue around 11:30 a.m.
The two victims, aged 15 and 16, were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police are looking for a third teen, who has been identified as a person of interest.
“We do understand the fear that may be generated when they hear of an incident like this, but we do know at this point, our early indications are that these are people who are known to each other,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Elenore Sturko.
“We are investigating to see what the cause of this incident was, but it does seem to be an isolated incident at this point, and we haven’t any information at this point that would indicate a larger risk to the population.”
The incident happened just a few blocks from Guildford Park Secondary School. Police have not confirmed the teens involved were students at the school, but the incident has parents talking.
“I have a 16 year old son who lives right next door he goes to GP so yeah it’s really concerning when it’s between two youths, they should be in school not out stabbing each other,” said parent Shawn Dean.
“My son went here for five years, and I think its a pretty good school, he never had a problem. Now [my daughter has] been here, grade 12 now, five years and never had a problem ever,” said parent Greg Bell.
Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
