A man is in hospital being treated for serious injuries after he was stabbed at a home in Newton.

At about 3 a.m. Sunday (Dec. 25) a number of individuals knocked on the door of a home in the 7400-block Todd Crescent.

An altercation broke out and a man was stabbed.

He was taken to hospital where he is being treated for serious, but not life-threatening injuries.

Surrey RCMP Sgt. Dale Carr said it’s early in the investigation yet, and it’s unclear as to whether the individuals were known to each other.

The investigation continues.

Carr said that while it was a busy Christmas Eve for the RCMP, the calls were fairly routine, and involved mostly domestic disputes.
