BURNABY RCMP officers were called to Silver Drive in the Metrotown area around 10:20 p.m on Thursday, August 4, for reports of three men fighting, with witnesses reporting a knife was involved.
Police believe that two men were leaving a nearby restaurant when they got into a physical fight with a third man, who was not known to them, in a parking lot. A knife was pulled during the incident.
Two of the men allegedly involved in the fight fled the area in a vehicle that was boxed in by police near Kingsway and Sussex Avenue. A 33-year-old man found inside the vehicle was taken to hospital for treatment of stab wounds. His injuries are believed to be superficial. The second man in the vehicle, who is 40 years old, was not hurt.
A 27-year-old man involved in the fight was found in the area by police and was taken to hospital for treatment of his injuries, which do not appear to be serious.
A knife was found nearby and was seized by police.
The incident is being investigated by Burnaby RCMP’s Investigative Support Team (IST).
