Suspect arrested, facing charges after incident Wednesday

One man has died and another is facing charges after a violent attack in Whalley.

At about 1:50 p.m. Wednesday (Sept. 14),  Surrey RCMP received a call of an assault in the area of 135A Street and 108 Avenue.

When police arrived, they found a man in critical condition.

A well-placed source says the man was likely stabbed in the neck, possibly hitting a major artery. He was transported to hospital, but died as a result of his injuries Thursday. He was identified as Troy Clysdale, 49.

A second victim was treated for serious but not life-threatening injuries.

The suspect fled the scene, but was quickly located and arrested by RCMP and taken into custody. Boni-Muhammed Mutawakel, 20, remains in custody facing a charge of Aggravated Assault. IHIT (Integrated Homicide Investigation Team) and RCMP are consulting with Crown Counsel to determine if homicide-related charges will be laid.

IHIT and Surrey RCMP are continuing with an investigation. RCMP said a motive has yet to be determined, but the incident may have begun with a verbal dispute.

“This event occurred in a public place during daytime hours,” said Cp. Meghan Foster. “We are looking to speak with more witnesses who were in the area at the time of this incident that may be able to provide valuable information to assist our investigation.”

Anyone with further information who has not already spoke to police 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 or go to www.solvecrime.ca
