There were two stabbings on Surrey public transit this past weekend.
A 15-year-old boy was stabbed in the stomach after a fight broke out between two groups of young men, on a Coast Mountain bus at 1: 30 p.m. Sunday. At press time the Surrey RCMP had not yet made an arrest but were looking for a 21-year-old man they considered to be a "person of interest." The bus pulled over at 74th Avenue and King George Boulevard, police said.
Meantime, on Saturday Transit Police arrested a 17-year-old girl after she allegedly stabbed her 28-year-old former boyfriend in the leg with a steak knife on Friday night, after following him onto a bus from Langley. The girl, who has been charged with assault with a weapon, allegedly stabbed the man when they got off the SkyTrain at Gateway Station in Whalley.
Police said the victim's forehead was also cut and he sustained "defensive wounds" to both hands. Both the accused and victim are from Surrey.
