Police seek suspect after man slashed in fight

 

A young man was nicked with a knife during a fight outside the Brookswood 7-11 Thursday night, RCMP say.

Two young men got into an argument at about 10 p.m., said Cpl. Patrick Davies, a spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

One of them threw a punch, and one of them pulled a knife, said Davies. 

The victim suffered a small cut to his neck that required a few stitches. He was released from hospital quickly.

The Air One helicopter was called out as police searched the area for the suspect, but they could not locate him.

The victim is known to police and is not cooperating with the investigators, said Davies.

Police have a relatively vague description of the suspect, a Caucasian man in his early 20s, about 5’6” tall and wearing a black hat and a black shirt.

Anyone who saw the fight and has not spoken to police, or has information on the suspect, can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
