Two stabbings in less than a week sent two separate victims to the hospital with serious injuries.
A man stabbed and rushed to hospital early Sunday morning from Aldergrove has been tentatively identified as a 55-year-old Langley man.
The victim was found at about 1 a.m. in the 27000 block of Fraser Highway. Ambulance paramedics called to the scene contacted the police.
"We don't have the victim's identity confirmed as yet," said Const. Craig van Herk, speaking for the Langley RCMP detachment.
The RCMP's Serious Crimes Unit is investigating the attack, which left the man seriously injured. He was airlifted to hospital.
Van Herk could not say anything about possible suspects, or the motive for the stabbing. Police are also not sure yet if the man was stabbed where he was found, or if he was attacked elsewhere and either travelled or was taken to Fraser Highway.
There are no known ties between the attack in Aldergrove and the numerous murders around the Lower Mainland, in Hope and Surrey, that took place the same weekend.
Police are looking for a suspect or suspects in the case, van Herk said.
Langley RCMP were already investigating another stabbing, after an incident early Tuesday morning in downtown Langley City.
At 4:13 a.m., Langley RCMP received more than one 911 call from neighbours about a loud fight taking place in the 5400 block of 207th Street. Officers arrived to find one man with a serious stab wound to his upper torso or shoulder area, said Cpl. Holly Marks.
There had apparently been an argument that allegedly ended with the stabbing, Marks said.
The man, 50, was taken to hospital and in Wednesday remained in critical condition.
The 32-year-old woman was first taken to Vancouver Provincial Court on outstanding warrants. She has been kept in custody and charges have been recommended against her for the attack, Marks said.
