Burnaby RCMP seeking the public's help in finding a suspect after a man was stabbed at Holdom SkyTrain station on Saturday.

On June 11, just after midnight, an intoxicated man was walking into the station when he noticed a man and woman arguing. He was laughing at nothing in particular, but as he passed by the couple, the man involved in the argument took offence.

After the man who had been arguing said something to the victim as he passed, the victim thought he had been punched since he felt a pain in his side. It wasn't until he got to the train platform and met a friend that he realized he'd been stabbed. He was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Royal Columbian Hospital then released.

The suspect is described only as a man in his early 20s and five-foot-five. He was wearing gangster-type clothing at the time of the assault.

His female companion is only described as being about the same age as the suspect.

Anyone with information which could help identity the male suspect or his female companion is asked to call Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922 or to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222 TIPS (8477).
