Mounties in Surrey, B.C., are asking for help from the public to identify the suspect in what appears to be a road rage incident that ended with a stabbing on the weekend.

“What started as a simple traffic incident quickly escalated into a life-threatening situation for the victim,” said Cpl. Scotty Schumann.

Police say several witnesses phoned 911 reporting “road rage” involving two vehicles on 72nd Avenue near 121st Street in Newton at 3:30 p.m. PT on Sunday.

The victim was punched by the male suspect in a parking lot near the intersection, say police.

RCMP say the suspect then attacked the victim again and stabbed him.

The victim collapsed, and the suspect was last seen fleeing on foot near the intersection of 75th Avenue and 121st Street.

The suspect is described as having:

  • Dark hair.
  • Dark beard.
  • Wearing black shoes, blue jeans and a white tank top.
  • Driving a Mazda 3 hatchback.

“When faced with a ‘road rage’ incident, stay calm and call police when it’s safe and you’re able to pull over,” said Schumann.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Public assistance requested in break and enter

Surrey: Surrey RCMP is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect in  a break and enter to a residence in the City Centre area.

On March 27th, at 8:30am Surrey RCMP received a call from a female victim in her 80’s that an unknown male had entered her home in the 9300 block of 133A Street.  When she tried to call 911 the male locked the doors and took away her phone.  The male then searched her home, stole several items of value, and left.  The victim was not physically injured.

Surrey RCMP’s Robbery Unit is leading this investigation.  A neighborhood canvass was conducted to identify potential witnesses from the area.  Members from the Integrated Forensics Investigation Service (IFIS) were called to the scene to gather further evidence for forensic analysis.  In addition, an RCMP sketch artist was engaged and was able to produce a likeness of the suspect .

The suspect is described as a South Asian or Filipino male in his mid 30’s, 5’10” tall, with a muscular build .  The suspect was wearing an overly large black baseball cap with a brim that covered his ears, hair, and head. The suspect has “squinty” eyes and a very round head  with a short square chin.

“We’re hopeful that this composite sketch will lead to the eventual identification of the suspect,” says Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “Remember to keep your ground floor windows and doors locked, even when you are home, to reduce your risk of a break and enter.”
