IHIT called into Surrey after homicide at Port Kells home

One person has been arrested after a woman was killed in Surrey’s Port Kells neighbourhood Sunday night. Monika Gul reports.

The Surrey RCMP says it has called in the Lower Mainland’s homicide investigation team after a woman was killed in the city’s Port Kells neighbourhood Sunday night.


Mounties say that around 10 p.m. police were called to a home on 182A Street near 98 Avenue after reports of a “woman with life-threatening injuries.”

“With assistance from the Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Service (PDS), members of the Surrey RCMP quickly located and arrested a man near the area,” Corp. James Mason shared.

In a statement, BC Emergency Health Services shared that it was called to the area around 9:50 p.m. Sunday.

“An ambulance with primary care paramedics, an advanced care paramedic response unit, and a supervisor attended the scene. Paramedics provided emergency medical treatment to one patient who was transported to hospital in critical condition,” said paramedic public information officer Brian Twaites.

The Surrey RCMP says the woman died from her injuries in the hospital.

One neighbour, Justin, says he’s worried there may have been a random attack in the “very quiet neighbourhood.”

“[I’m] shocked, worried. It’s a family neighbourhood, a lot of kids around here and it’s quiet,” he told CityNews Monday. “So, to have something happen like that … me and my son were going for a walk around eight o’clock last night, and [if we had come] across that individual, if their intent was malicious, it would be extremely concerning.

Anyone with information about the incident is being urged to asked to contact the IHIT Information line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca
