What initially looked like a serious assault outside a Langley convenience store on Thursday evening turned out to be a relatively minor incident, but police are still asking for the public's help to track down a suspect who attacked another man with a knife.

The incident took place outside the Brookswood 7-Eleven store at around 10 p.m. on Aug. 14 when a dispute between two men took a violent turn and one man pulled out a knife and cut the other on the neck.

Although it was just a small nick, "neck injuries are worrisome" and the victim was taken to hospital where he received a small number of stitches and was released, said  Langley RCMP Cpl. Patrick Davies.

He is not co-operating with police, Davies added.

Mounties searched for the suspect using Air One and a police dog, but neither was successful in locating the man, described as a Caucasian in his early 20s, who stands about five-foot-six and weighs around 160 pounds.

At the time of the assault, he was wearing a black hat and a black T-shirt with red writing.

Anyone who has information about the incident and has not already spoken with police, is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
