Surrey logged its 15th murder of the year on Friday morning.

Surrey marks year’s 15th murder

Man was stabbed in a quiet Guildford neighbourhood on Friday morning.



A quiet Guildford neighbourhood feels like “the Bronx” after a man was stabbed to death, an area resident says.

On Friday, at about 1 a.m., a fight broke out at the intersection of 154 Street and 100 Avenue.

On arrival, police found two males, aged 17 and 22,  suffering from stab wounds.

The 22-year-old succumbed to his injuries in hospital, while the 17-year-old is in serious, but stable condition.

It was Surrey’s 15th murder of 2013, surpassing the annual average over the last decade, which was 14. The most murders Surrey has had in the last decade was in 2005, when the city experienced 21 homicides.

Carlos, who used to manage the apartment building Escada near the killing, says he was asleep when the fight occurred.

He says the feeling of safety in the neighbourhood is gone.

“You would like to think this kind of thing wouldn’t happen so close to your home,” said Carlos, who spoke to The Leader on the condition his last name not be used.

The early morning violence makes him feel “like I’m in the Bronx,” Carlos said, referring to the northernmost borough of New York that has a history of poverty and violence.

As of Friday morning, police had closed off 154 Street, and investigators with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) were canvassing nearby homes for witnesses.

Police are now looking for a late 2000 model Honda Civic, silver or grey. They area appealing to the non-Caucasian driver, between 40 and 45 years of age, to come forward to shed some light on what happened during the altercation.

“Investigators are in the process of trying to determine the roles everyone played in this altercation and are encouraging the driver of this vehicle to come forward and shed some light on what occurred in the intersection this morning.” said IHIT Sgt. Adam MacIntosh in a prepared release.

Police are also asking anyone with information regarding this investigation, the driver of the Honda Civic or the location of the vehicle to contact the IHIT tip line by calling 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.  If you wish to remain anonymous please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or leave a tip on their website at Solvecrime.ca
