Newton man stabbed and robbed

A man was rushed to hospital earlier this week after being stabbed in the back, in what police believe may have been a drug deal gone wrong.

On Monday at about 9:30 p.m., the man had been going to meet someone near 123 Street and 69 Avenue when he was jumped by two men. He was stabbed in the back and was robbed.

With a punctured lung, the man managed to make it home, where he called 911.

His injuries are not life-threatening and no arrests have been made.

If anyone has any information, call Surrey RCMP at 604-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-3477 (TIPS).
