Burnaby RCMP are investigating after a man was stabbed in a parking lot on Lougheed Highway Saturday afternoon.

The victim, a man in his early 20s, was in the 4200-block of Lougheed when he was stabbed at about 3:45 p.m., said Staff Sgt. Major John Buis.

He ran into a nearby business for help. "Witnesses helped put pressure on the injury until paramedics arrived," said Buis.

The man was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital where he is recovering from a non-life-threatening injury.

There are believed to be up to three suspects, all Asian males. There is no further description of the suspects.

"We don't believe it's a random act," said Buis. "It could be an argument over something, we've yet to find out all the details."

"We're not getting a lot of cooperation, particularly from one of the witnesses," he said, adding it's believed the witness is a friend of the victim.

"We need to talk to the victim again."
