Suspect sought in Sunday pub stabbing

Victim remains in serious condition after double stabbing outside Haney Public House

Ridge Meadows  RCMP are looking for a man after a two people were stabbed outside the Haney Public House early Sunday.

The violent altercation took place around 2:30 a.m., and initial reports have a black pickup truck seen fleeing the scene. One of the victims in the attack is in critical condition after undergoing surgery.

RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said police were called just as the establishment was closing for the night.

“The attending officers found two males that had sustained injuries,” said Dunlop. “They were transported to hospital, with one male subsequently being released, and the other in critical condition after surgery.”

Dunlop said the initial investigation has revealed that there appears to have been an argument between two males and the suspect, a Caucasian male in his early 30s with a medium build.

“In addition to witness accounts of what occurred, video surveillance may also play a role in advancing investigations that occur in very public locations. Our investigators are diligently following up on all available leads to solve this crime as soon as possible. ”
