Transit Police Arrest Juvenile Female Stabbing Suspect
February 16, 2013
A 17 year old female was arrested by Transit Police early this morning, after stabbing her 28 year old former boyfriend.
The suspect, who cannot be named because of her age, had consumed alcohol with her ex-boyfriend during the afternoon and evening and followed him onto a bus when he left their Langley location, heading for Surrey.
The two argued on the bus with the suspect again following the victim onto the SkyTrain at King George Station. The arguing continued until the train arrived at Gateway Station. As the victim stepped onto the platform, the suspect produced a knife and stabbed him in the leg. A fight broke out with the victim sustaining defensive wounds to his hands and a cut to his forehead.
The suspect ran from the platform via an emergency exit but was apprehended by Transit Police while still on the stairs. She remains in custody, charged with Assault with a Weapon, and will appear Monday in Surrey Provincial Court. A steak knife was recovered by the officers.
The victim’s injuries were not life threatening. He was treated and released this morning. Both the victim and the suspect are residents of Surrey.
Several witnesses provided information to T-Police officers at the scene. Anyone with any additional information regarding this incident is asked to call Transit Police at 604-515-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
Transit Police is committed to maintaining order, promoting safety and reducing crime on the transit system in Metro Vancouver.
