Man charged with attempted murder

A man is in critical condition after being stabbed in the neck several times at a North Surrey recovery house.

Dylan Robert Charles Jordan has been arrested for attempted murder in relation to the stabbing.

Police say Jordan had been ordered to stay at Luke 15 after his release from prison on Nov. 13.

On Sunday morning, Jordan is alleged to have driven a kitchen knife into another man's neck several times.

The 48-year-old victim, who was also a client of Luke 15, was rushed to Vancouver General Hospital where he remains in critical but non-life threatening condition.

Police say Jordan has an extensive record, some of which were violent offenses.

Luke 15 is a successful recovery home which has operated for 20 years. It was started in Burnaby in 1992, then moved to Surrey in 2005.
