Cloverdale brawl becomes bloody

Knives brought out in Cloverdale skirmish on Saturday.

Surrey man was stabbed during a fight in Cloverdale Saturday.



Two men were injured Saturday when a brawl at a Cloverdale McDonald’s Restaurant got nasty.

At about 1 a.m. Saturday, four Indo-Canadian men approached the door of the McDonald’s on 64 Avenue and 176 Street when they ran into about four Caucasian men.

The two groups got into a physical altercation, which escalated when one of the Caucasian men pulled a knife

The reason for the fight is unclear at this point.

The man with the knife, described as Caucasian and 17 or 18 years old with a buzz cut, white t-shirt and blue jeans, stabbed two of the men in the other group.

One of the men who was stabbed went to his home nearby and his family called 911.

All the injuries appear to be non-life threatening. Police do not believe the assault was a hate crime.

The group that called 911 was originally co-operative until they called lawyers and are now being less helpful.

Police are continuing to investigate and will be reviewing surveillance cameras in the area.
