VPD nab suspect in Surrey double-stabbing

Dramatic crime spree began in Surrey and ended when Vancouver police arrested a suspect near Kent Avenue and Cambie Street.

A Vancouver police car brings a carjacked Volkswagen to a stop in an industrial area of Vancouver.

A double stabbing at a Newton grocery store, a carjacking and a chase ended Friday afternoon with Vancouver police arresting a suspect in Vancouver.

At about 9:30 a.m. on Dec. 5, police responded to a report of a shoplifter at the Newton Safeway, in the 7100-block 138 Street.

When RCMP arrived, they found that the alleged shoplifter had stabbed two employees with a knife.

The injuries to the male employees were non-life threatening.

The suspect fled on food and stole a vehicle with a man still inside.

The driver took off and police resources around the Lower Mainland were put on alert.

The driver stopped in the 3300-block of Cambie Street in Vancouver, where the man in the car was able to escape. After multiple attempts by police to stop the car, the suspect fled on foot in an industrial area of South Vancouver.

At about 10:30 a.m., the suspect was arrested and taken into custody by Vancouver Police in the area of West Kent Avenue and Cambie Street.

Charges have not been laid, so the suspect has not yet been identified.
