Port Kells stabbing ‘targeted’

Police are looking for a suspect after a violent incident.

A man was wounded in a targeted attack in Surrey’s Port Kells area early Monday morning.

The RCMP were called after reports of shots being heard near 184th Street and 92nd Avenue, said Staff Sgt. Joe Johal.

Officers who responded to the calls found a wounded man in the area. He was rushed to a regional hospital for treatment.

Intitially police believed the man had been shot, but medical treatment revealed he had been stabbed. Investigators at the scene could not confirm that there had been a shooting there.

The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Johal said the incident appears to be targeted.

Police closed down 92nd Avenue between 184 and 187th streets for a few hours while investigators gathered evidence.

Anyone with a tip on the incident was asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
