Two or three men were seen running away from the scene. Fox was charged on Nov. 29, and has spent time in and out of jail since then.

Also at his court date on July 20, Fox was sentenced to time served on a robbery charge from June 10, 2019 in Abbotsford.

He pleaded guilty to that charge, while two other offences – possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose and assault causing bodily harm – were stayed.

Fox was out on bail on those charges when he was involved in the stabbing in November.

According to the provincial court database, Fox is also facing a new charge in Surrey.

He and co-accused Jaimal McClaren were each charged on July 13 with aggravated assault in relation to an incident that occurred on Jan. 6 of this year.
