An altercation at a South Surrey motel in September that ended with one man stabbed was apparently fueled by a dispute over ice cream.

Peace Arch News reported at the time that police attended the 926 160 St. Cedar Lane Motel around 6 p.m. Sept. 19, after a 48-year-old man called to report he had been stabbed by his friend.

The pair had known each other for about 40 years and had been living at the hotel when the incident occurred, police said.

According to a search warrant filed in Surrey Provincial Court, the altercation began after one man asked another if he could have some ice cream and was told no.

A third man, in the living room of the motel unit, told police he heard a bang around 6 p.m., followed by arguing between the two other men, the documents state.

When the victim reported his injuries, he said he was “bleeding heavily,” and when police arrived, they arrested at gunpoint “an overweight male wearing a grey, dirty shirt with black pants,” the search warrant notes.

Airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital from the sports field at Earl Marriott Secondary, the victim later told police his friend had taken the ice cream in question into a bedroom; the victim followed, kicked open the door and an altercation ensued, the documents state.

The victim suffered a two-inch deep stab wound to his right shoulder blade.

The search warrant was requested in an effort to recover a black-handled folding knife with a six-inch blade from the scene. Police were also looking for a blue-handled, 28-ounce ‘Eastwing’ hammer.

According to an online court database, Darren Grant Duttenhoffer, 50, is facing charges of assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm. He is due back in Surrey Provincial Court on Dec. 2.
