SkyTrain stabbing followed day of drinking, say police

Woman, 17, accused of attacking 28-year-old ex-boyfriend with a steak knife

A 17-year-old was arrested after stabbing her 28-year-old ex-boyfriend with a steak knife, after allegedly spending the day and evening drinking with him in Langley on Friday.

The suspect, who can’t be named because of her age, had been drinking with the man during the afternoon and into the evening when the pair took a bus from Langley and headed to SkyTrain in Surrey, said Transit Police.

The two argued on the bus, and it continued when the teen followed her ex-boyfriend onto SkyTrain at King George station.

The pair argued until the train arrived at Gateway station. As the victim stepped onto the platform, the girl produced a knife and stabbed him in the leg, said Transit Police.

A fight broke out with the victim sustaining defensive wounds to his hands and a cut to his forehead. The girl ran from the platform but was apprehended by Transit Police while on the exit stairs. She was held in custody and appeared in court on Monday. A steak knife was recovered at the scene, said Transit Police.

Both are Surrey residents.
