Teenage girls go on stabbing rampage on Skytrain in Surrey

Two teenage girls are in police custody after a stabbing rampage on Skytrain last night.

Transit police spokeswoman Anne Drennan says she’s never heard anything quite like this.

She says around 11:30 p.m., a 14- and 15-year-old girl first confronted two women at the Gateway station in Surrey, one of them slashing one woman’s arm.

“The two suspects (then) got on a northbound train and confronted a woman on the train, threatening her with an 8-inch, serrated steak knife, and stabbing a train seat.”

Drennan says the girls exited at Columbia Station, followed this woman, and then punched her in the face.

Finally, they rode to Joyce Station and stabbed a man holding a pizza box.  They ran off from the station, but were arrested.

Drennan says they now face a litany of charges, including assault causing bodily harm and assault with a weapon, and are known to police.

It is unclear whether alcohol or drugs was a factor.
