All victims and suspects in Richmond stabbings known to police

SHORTLY before 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, frontline Richmond RCMP responded to the intersection of No. 3 Road and Westminster Highway after multiple reports of a group of people fighting.

Two victims – a 65-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man – were located and found suffering from injuries consistent with a knife attack. Their injuries were considered serious but not life-threatening. Both are from Richmond.

Three suspects fled the scene prior to police arrival.

Police immediately set up a security perimeter and initiated a search. Two suspects were swiftly located and arrested by police. A knife was also recovered. The third suspect, a woman, was located and arrested a short time later. A 41-year-old man from Richmond, a 32-year-old man from Vancouver, and a 25-year-old woman from Burnaby are in police custody.

“These attacks do not appear to be random. The victims and suspects are known to police,” said Cpl. Dennis Hwang on Thursday.
