Surrey RCMP is updating the public that a suspect in two alleged unprovoked stabbings in the Guildford area has been arrested.

On June 4, 2022 at approximately at 8:55 p.m., police were called to Walmart located in the 10300-block of 152 Street in Surrey for the report of a stabbing. Upon attendance police learned that the suspect had fled the store. The victim was transported to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Frontline officers and support units flooded the area immediately which lead to officers locating and arresting the alleged suspect in the 15000-block of 104 Avenue.

Police believe that the alleged suspect is also responsible for a stabbing incident that occurred on June 2, 2022, at the Superstore in Guildford (Media Release 2022-06-02).

Surrey RCMP General Investigation Unit has conduct of both ongoing investigations and the suspect, a 33-year-old female, remains in custody.

The quick actions and coordinated efforts by Frontline officers, the Police Mental Health Outreach Team and several other supporting units who responded, helped ensure the suspect was safely taken into custody, says Inspector Bill Parmar, D Watch Duty Officer. These were disturbing and violent incidents in our community, and we are thankful to all who assisted ensuring a suspect was arrested.

Anyone with information about either stabbing incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP General Investigation Unit at 604-599-0502.
