A teenager is recovering after being stabbed twice in the back at a Halloween party in Clayton on Saturday night.

Police say the 16-year-old was at a party in the 18200 block of 60 Avenue at about 11 p.m. when he got into an altercation with a person at the party.

Police were told he was approached by someone who took issue with a fight the victim's cousin had been in weeks earlier.

Then, two  more people joined the alcohol-fuelled argument, which turned physical, and the victim curled up on the ground where he was punched and kicked.

Then someone pulled a knife and stabbed him in the back.

Police say all but two of the 19 people at the party had left before they arrived, and that they have no description of the assailant.

Mounties are asking anyone who was at the party or has information regarding the stabbing to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
