Suspect sought after female traffic control flagger assaulted in Surrey

The male suspect fled on bicycle

Surrey RCMP are searching for a bicycle-riding man suspected of injuring a female traffic control flagger on Wednesday afternoon (Sept. 2).

Police say the “serious assault” with a weapon happened at around 2 p.m. near the intersection of 95A Avenue and 148 Street in Surrey.

The worker was stabbed in the abdomen and rushed to hospital in serious condition, according to a Black Press Media freelancer at the scene.

“The male suspect fled on bicycle and police are actively looking for him,” a RCMP news release says.

Early reports describe the suspect as a Caucasian male, heavy set, in his 30’s wearing dark clothing, a baseball cap and riding a red mountain bike.

“Anyone who sees an individual matching this description should call police immediately,” says the news release.

Any witnesses in the area who may have dash-cam footage should contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
