Police were called to the 3200 block of 272 Street where a 19-year-old male had been stabbed in the back on Tuesday afternoon.

 

Very preliminary investigation is now underway and police believe the victim was in his vehicle with four other associates when a second car arrived.

The suspect broke a window on the victim’s vehicle with a metal pipe (possibly a crowbar) resulting in the victim getting out of his vehicle.  A confrontation resulted and the 19-year-old was stabbed in the back, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks.

 

The suspect fled in his vehicle and BC Air Ambulance landed at Parkside Elementary to transport the stabbed male to hospital.  He is currently in serious but stable condition.

 

Everyone involved appears to be known to each other and all have some level of involvement in street level drugs.

 

Police will continue to investigate and attempts are currently being made to locate and arrest the suspect, said Marks.
