A Langley teen will make a full recovery after being stabbed in the neck and back on  Tuesday, June 17, in a fight in broad daylight at the Langley City bus loop.

His alleged attacker, an 18-year-old Langley man, was arrested nearby. Both involved are known to each other and to police. The victim isn’t co-operating, said Cpl. Holly Marks.

Jordan Leclerc is charged with one count of aggravated assault and has been held in jail until his next court appearance on July 10.

The stabbing is one of three attacks in as many months on or around transit in Langley.

The most notable incident was a woman who attacked a mother and her three very young children, including throwing a drink in a baby’s face, on a bus that was headed to Willowbrook Shopping Centre bus exchange.

In that case, Leah MacKay, 44, is accused of threatening to kill the mother and her three children after the mother told MacKay to stop swearing.

MacKay is then accused of throwing a drink in the baby’s face. The mother went after the woman and a fight broke out, which was caught on video. Both the accused and the victims got off the bus, where it is alleged MacKay pulled out a knife and kicked a toddler, while pushing down the other child.

MacKay has been held in custody until her next court appearance in August.

A Langley teen was back in court on June 23, facing serious charges after a drunken rampage which included trying to assault several bus drivers and stab other people at the Langley City bus loop on May 3.

Police say the 18-year-old man was a passenger on a shuttle bus destined for the Langley bus loop from Willowbrook Shopping Centre.

He appeared to be intoxicated when he boarded the bus around 4 p.m. and passed out en route to the bus loop, allege police. Luckily he failed to connect with any of his victims.

Lance James Flegel was held in jail charged with assault with a weapon, etc.

He makes his next court appearance on July 9.
