Surrey RCMP is currently investigating an assault with a weapon that injured a youth at a high school in Newton.

At approximately 11:30 am on March 1, 2021, Surrey RCMP responded to an assault with a weapon at Panorama Ridge Secondary, during which a male youth was injured. The assault occurred outside of the school. The youth was taken to an area hospital in stable condition. Police placed the school on a hold and secure until the safety of all of the students was confirmed.

The initial indications are that the assault is related to an on-going dispute among parties known to one another. There is no indication of an on-going risk to safety at the school however; there will be an increased police presence as the investigation continues.
