SURREY RCMP is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect in a stabbing that occurred in Guildford on Thursday at approximately 12:55 p.m.
Surrey RCMP received a report that a female had been stabbed inside a grocery store located in the 14600-block of 104 Avenue. Police arrived within minutes of the call and located a female victim suffering from apparent stab wounds. The victim was given first aid at the scene and then transported to hospital with serious injuries.
