SURREY, B.C. - Police are investigating the stabbing of a 17-year-old boy who was apparently approached by a man attempting to borrow a cigarette.
RCMP Staff Sgt. Murray Hedderson says the teen was hit on the head and stabbed in the abdomen when he couldn't provide a cigarette.
Hedderson says the suspect ran off, and the teen walked to a nearby home to have police called after the incident Friday night.
He says the youth was transported to hospital by ambulance for non-life threatening injuries.
