A stabbing victim is transported to a Earl Marriott Secondary field Monday evening

Man airlifted after stabbing at South Surrey motel

One man was airlifted to hospital with stab wounds and another was arrested Monday following an altercation at a South Surrey motel.

One man was airlifted to hospital with stab wounds and another was arrested Monday following an altercation at a South Surrey motel.

The incident occurred around 6 p.m. Sept. 19, in a unit at the Cedar Lane Motel, 926 160 St.

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Drew Grainger said police attended the area after a 48-year-old man reported he had been stabbed by his friend.

“They got into an argument,” Grainger said, noting the two men involved have known each other for about 40 years and had been living at the motel together.

There is no indication alcohol fueled the incident, he said.

Police arrested a 50-year-old man at the scene and a charge of assault with a weapon has been recommended.

Grainger confirmed police recovered a knife from the scene. While he did not know exactly what kind of knife was found, area resident Aaron Macdonald said police on the scene told him it was a hunting knife.

Macdonald said he learned about the stabbing when he went to investigate a commotion he heard coming from the motel.

He said the victim appeared conscious, and looked to have been stabbed in the back.

“When they transported him – when they put him on the stretcher – he had gauze and it looked like at least one wound on his back,” Macdonald said.

The victim, who suffered a wound to his right shoulder blade, was airlifted to hospital from the sports field at Earl Marriott Secondary.
