UPDATED: Man slashed in Langley parking lot fight

One man was taken away by an ambulance with apparent stab wounds Tuesday morning after an expletive-filled fight in a parking lot on 64th Avenue.

At about 10:30 a.m., two men got into some kind of fight near the Wendy’s restaurant at 202nd Street.

A witness, who asked not to be named, saw part of the altercation and said the two men involved both appeared to be in their 20s, one Caucasian and one black.

The white man was yelling at the other man, who was sitting in the passenger seat of a car near the restaurant. The witness said the white man was yelling “You’re dead!” at the other man.

The black man got out of the car and a brief scuffle took place. The white man darted back and may have been slashed with a sharp object.

The woman driving the car yelled at her passenger to get back in. He got back in the car and they headed to the intersection at 64th Avenue and 202 Street.

The white man followed them, and kicked the car’s door while it waited behind another car at the light. He then pressed his chest against the car window, leaving it smeared with blood.

The car pulled out and around the car in front of it and headed off down 64th Avenue to the west.

First responders found the man inside the washroom at the Wendy’s restaurant on the corner, said Cpl. Holly Marks, a spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The man with the stab wound was attended by Langley Township firefighters, and then by paramedics. 

The victim had suffered a slash to his stomach, and was described as “very uncooperative,” with police.

The man did not want to go to the hospital, and police had to arrest him under the Mental Health Act to ensure that he was taken for treatment.

He was loaded into an ambulance, but was moving and speaking and did not appear to be seriously injured. The man was released from the hospital after being treated, said Marks.

Police interviewed several witnesses after the incident, but there have been no reported arrests in the case.
