A couple who attempted to carjack a vehicle at a Surrey, B.C, gas station Wednesday night ended up losing the van to two other carjackers, according to the RCMP.
Police are also investigating a possible link to a stabbing nearby that was reported 10 minutes after the carjacking incident.
At around 10:30 p.m. PT Wednesday, police received a report of a carjacking at an Esso gas station at King George Boulevard and 104th Avenue.

The driver of a van told police and Indo-Canadian couple, a man and a woman, approached him as he was getting out of his vehicle, and the man threatened him with a small machete-style weapon.
The driver said he feared for his safety and so he exited the van and handed over the keys. That's when two white men in their mid-20s walked up and began arguing with the male and female would-be carjackers. One of the white men then got into the van and drove off.
"It does appear to be a case of a carjacker being carjacked," Cpl. Bert Paquet said.
The other white man headed north and the pair walked off to the south on King George Boulevard.
About ten minutes later, at 10:40 p.m. PT, a 37-year-old man walked into a community health clinic in the 10600 block of 135A Street and said he had been approached by a dark-skinned man and woman on King George Boulevard, and stabbed with a sword-like knife.
He was taken to hospital, and was reported to be in stable condition.
The stolen van is described as a blue 2003 Dodge Caravan with B.C licence plate 823 RWF. It was last seen heading north on King George Highway.
No arrests have been made in the case.
