Police have released images from a security video at a Surrey restaurant in hopes of identifying a suspect in a stabbing at the establishment on Sunday.

Surrey RCMP say on Nov. 2 at about 12:15 p.m., a worker at Wings Tap and Grill near 71 Avenue and King George Boulevard reported that a man had entered the restaurant through a back door.

Two employees confronted the suspect and attempted to detain him until police arrived. But the man picked up a knife and stabbed the two employees before fleeing.

Both victims were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. One has since been released.

The suspect is described as in his late 30s or early 40s, approximately 5’11” tall with a large build, wearing a baseball hat and sunglasses.

“Identifying and apprehending the suspect has remained a priority for our investigators,” said Cpl. Bert Paquet of the Surrey RCMP. “We are asking the public for any information on this case in order to assist us in taking this individual into custody.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca
