Arrests made after post-fireworks SkyTrain stabbing

A drunken dispute on SkyTrain after Saturday’s Celebration of Light fireworks in Vancouver resulted in a woman exiting an eastbound train at Edmonds station screaming that her boyfriend had been stabbed.

The victim, a 40-year-old resident of Surrey, was transported to hospital by ambulance to be treated for a stab wound in his arm that required five stitches.

Anne Drennan, of Transit Police, said the argument developed after three men boarded the train at Broadway station.

The suspects fled the train at Edmonds and two of them were arrested immediately. They were questioned and later released.

Transit Police recovered a knife that was used in the stabbing.

They’re also still looking for the third suspect.

He’s described as a white male, 20-25 years old, 5’8” to 5’9” tall, 150 lbs., wavy brown hair cut short on one side and wearing a black t-shirt and black cargo shorts.

Transit Police are asking anyone with any information about the incident to call them at 604-515-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
