Police believe an altercation between two people led to the incident, in the 13700-block of 97A Ave.

Surrey RCMP say a man suffered “potentially life altering injuries” in a stabbing on Tuesday (April 23).

Police responded to a report of a stabbing around 8:07 p.m., in the 13700-block of 97A Avenue.

When officers arrived, they found a 32-year-old man who had been stabbed.

He was taken to hospital in serious condition.

A Black Press freelancer at the scene said the man had injuries to his head, face and eye area.

“The initial investigation has revealed that an altercation occurred between two individuals resulting in the stabbing,” according to a Surrey RCMP release.

Police say the investigation is in its early stages “but it has been confirmed that the parties are known to each other and there is no apparent risk to the general public.”

“I can confirm that one person was taken to hospital as a result of being stabbed,” Corporal Elenore Sturko said. “The other person was transported to the hospital after being apprehended under the Mental Health Act.”
