Vancouver Police seek information in early Saturday morning stabbing

AN early morning downtown stabbing on Saturday has sent a 25-year-old man to hospital with serious life-threatening injuries. Police are seeking witnesses, and video from cell phones and dash cams.

Just before 2 a.m., two groups got into an altercation on Hornby Street near Dunsmuir Street. During this altercation a man was stabbed and seriously injured. He remains in hospital in stable condition.

The suspect fled the scene prior to the arrival of police. He is described as being in his late teens to early 20s, either white or Latino, and was wearing all black.

Investigators with the VPD’S Major Crime Section believe that the incident was captured on at least one cell phone camera, and they are asking for the footage to be turned over to police.

Detectives are also asking anyone with dash-cam video, who may have been driving in the area of Hornby and Dunsmuir Streets on Saturday between 1:30 and 2 a.m., to come forward.

Anyone with information about this stabbing, or with video, is asked to call Vancouver Police at 604-717-2541 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
