Suspects in an attempted robbery and a stabbing on Wednesday.

Two separate Surrey attacks may involve same couple

A man and woman are believed responsible for a stabbing and failed car jacking in Whalley Wednesday night



Surrey Mounties may be looking for the same couple responsible for a stabbing and failed car jacking in Whalley this week.

At about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, a man and woman with what is described as a small machete approached a man in a blue 2003 Dodge Caravan at an Esso Station near 104 Avenue and King George Boulevard.

They told him to get out, and hand over the keys.

As the couple got into the vehicle, they were approached by two other men in their mid-20s who then stole the van from the car jacker and took off.

About 10 minutes later, and a few blocks away, the Surrey Fire Department was called to the Front Room Drop-In Centre at 10667 135A St. on a medical call.

On arrival, they found a man who had been stabbed in the upper left chest. He was taken to hospital by ambulance with non-life threatening injuries.

The 37-year-old Surrey resident said he had been walking on King George Boulevard near 106 Avenue when he was approached by a couple.

An argument ensued.

The approaching man produced what the victim described as a small sword and began waving it around.

The two groups walked away from each other, but on his way to the Front Room, the victim realized he had been stabbed.

He is in hospital in stable condition.

The victim said he did not know the male or female, and was not forthcoming on what the verbal altercation was about.

Police believe there is a good probability that the same couple are responsible for both offences.

Police will be seizing the video footage from the Esso station to get a better description of the attackers. Police are also looking for the blue 2003 Dodge Caravan with licence plate 823 RWF.

The police are asking that anyone who may have witnessed the incident to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
