Young teen stabbed in Whalley
A 14-year-old boy has been stabbed in the back after an altercation at a convenience story in Whalley.
At about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, the teen was hanging out with friends at a 7-Eleven in the 13900 block pf Fraser Highway when the group was approached by another male of 15 or 16 years old.
They got into an altercation, and the 14-year-old was stabbed in the back by the older teen.
He suffered superficial, non-life threatening injuries and has since been released from hospital.
During the course of events, the older teen also stole a cellphone from a girl in the group.
He then fled northbound on foot.
Attempts to locate the attacker by tracing the cellphone or by use of the police canine units were unsuccessful.
RCMP are looking for a Caucasian male, 15 to 16 years old, wearing a black puffy jacket, red baseball cap, black track pants and white runners. He is about 5'6" and has a medium frame and muscular build.
Police are hoping to review video tape from the convenience store to obtain images of the suspect.
