Trial set in White Rock knife attack

Two days have been set aside to hear the case of a man charged in connection with a February altercation in White Rock.

A man accused of slicing another man repeatedly with a knife during an altercation in White Rock last February is to stand trial on the charges next spring.

According to court information, the case against Patrick Anthony Blake will be heard April 16 and 17 in Surrey Provincial Court. A trial confirmation hearing is set for March 6.

Blake is charged with assault with a weapon, uttering threats and assault causing bodily harm.

Const. Janelle Shoihet told Peace Arch News in April that an incident between two men took place in the 15400-block of Marine Drive on Feb. 22.

It’s alleged one man lashed out when he was asked to leave.

The unnamed victim, 40, needed stitches for deep cuts to his hands, several cuts to his fingers and a gash to the right side of his jaw, Shoihet said.
