Surrey Mounties are appealing to the public for help after they say a break and enter incident resulted in a stabbing and a theft of a car.
It happened Wednesday morning just before 4:30 AM.
Surrey RCMP are still looking for a Mini Cooper taken after the violent break and enter at a home in Cloverdale.
Three suspects are also still at large.
Corporal Scotty Schumann says the homeowner was also stabbed in the chest but is recovering.
“I’m sure this was a terrifying event for the homeowner, we are very thankful his injuries are non-life threatening.”
Schumann says other family members were in the house when the stabbing happened but they’re okay.
He can’t say if the break and enter was random or targeted.
It happened in the 19100 block of 62 A Avenue, when Police say the homeowner was confronted and then stabbed.
He was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The homeowner’s 2005 white Mini Cooper was stolen.
It has B.C. license plates – BT675H.
Anyone who sees this car should contact Surrey RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
Last July, 42-year-old realtor Colin Hill was shot to death during a break-in at his home in Cloverdale.
Officials say Hill, a father of two died while trying to protect his family from an intruder.
A 22-year-old man from Burnaby was later arrested and charged with second degree murder.
