Surrey RCMP are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect in a midday stabbing at a grocery store that left a woman seriously injured.   It happened at about 1o clock yesterday at the Real Canadian Superstore on 104 Ave near 148 Street.  They say the suspect fled the scene, while the victim was taken to hospital.  The female suspect is described as being in her early 30s with long, dark hair, and anyone with information is asked to contact police.  It does not appear that the two women knew each other and the Mounties say they’re not aware of any confrontation before the stabbing that took place. and that it appears to be completely random.
