Man with distinctive tear tattoo sought in Burnaby Stabbing
Burnaby RCMP is seeking help finding a man accused in the non-fatal stabbing of a Burnaby man on Sept. 6.
The victim was standing in front of an apartment on Dunblane Avenue in Burnaby when he was stabbed in the neck by another male who then left the area, police say.
The victim called 911 from his cell phone asking for help, and was later transported to hospital where he underwent surgery. He has since recovered.
Police have identified the alleged culprit as 23-year-old Merrick Holowka, a Burnaby resident. He is described as white, 5’4”, with a slight build and short brown hair. He has a distinctive “tear” tattoo at the lower left corner of his mouth.
A warrant has been issued for his arrest on one charge of aggravated assault.
If you see Holowka or believe you know his whereabouts, police advise you to not approach him. Call 911, Burnaby RCMP 604-294-7922 or CRIMESTOPPERS at (604) 222-TIPS.
