Two stabbed as fight breaks out at Sullivan house party

An alcohol-fueled fight ended with two young men stabbed last night in the 14500-block of 59B Avenue in Surrey.

Police say they responded shortly after 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, after a disturbance was reported in the Sullivan area.

Cpl. Drew Grainger said officers found two victims: a 21-year-old with several stab wounds to his upper torso, and a 17-year-old with one wound in his left arm.

Investigation determined the wounds were the result of a fight that broke out amongst attendees of a house party in a rented basement suite. The scuffle spilled into the driveway, and turned ugly, Grainger said.

“(The victims) were clearly engaged with the fight, but the group they were having a fight with took it up to another level, produced a knife,” Grainger said.

The majority of party guests fled the scene when police arrived, including those involved in the fight.

Grainger said the victims, one of whom remains in serious condition, are giving “minimal co-operation.”

Police do not have suspect descriptions, or know how many others were involved in the fight itself, however, it is believed two unknown individuals entered the suite and started the fight.

Grainger said one victim is known to police for property-related offences. Alcohol was “absolutely” a factor, he said.

Surrey RCMP’s Serious Crimes Unit is investigating, and are canvassing the neighbourhood in an effort to locate witnesses to the altercation, as well as to determine if any there is any video surveillance of the scene.
