A man from Surrey has now been charged in relation to a stabbing on April 21. 


On April 23, 2024 at 9:26 p.m., the White Rock RCMP responded to a report of injured man in the 15400-block of Marine Drive. Officers along with BC Ambulance Emergency Health Services attended and upon arrival, located a 26-year old man, later identified as Kulwinder Singh Sohi, on the White Rock Promenade at the parking lot adjacent to the Grand Chief Bernard Robert Charles (Pa-Kwach-Tun) Memorial Plaza, suffering from fatal stab wounds. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) took conduct of the investigation and continues to work closely in partnership with the White Rock RCMP, the BC Coroners Service and the Integrated Forensic Identification Services.

As a result of evidence collected by investigators, IHIT worked closely in partnership with the White Rock RCMP, who had conduct of a previous assault investigation which occurred in White Rock on April 21, 2024, in which 28-year old Jatinder Singh was assaulted while on the White Rock Promenade. 

On April 29, 2024, IHIT investigators with the assistance of the Integrated Emergency Response Team, arrested 28-year old Dimitri Nelson Hyacinth from Surrey, BC, in relation to the homicide.

As investigative efforts advanced, on April 30, 2024, Hyacinth was charged in relation to the aggravated assault of Jatinder Singh on April 21, 2024.

This is a dynamic and ongoing case. The investigation into the homicide of Mr. Sohi remains active, says Sergeant Timothy Pierotti of IHIT. We’re thankful for the collaborative work being done by the IHIT investigators along with the White Rock RCMP.

IHIT is asking that any witnesses or anyone who was in the area of the White Rock Promenade, east of the White Rock Pier near the parking lot adjacent to the Grand Chief Bernard Robert Charles (Pa-Kwach-Tun) Memorial Plaza or driving on Marine Drive on April 23, 2024, between 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., with dash cameras or anyone who may have information regarding the homicide to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at
