Man in critical condition after possible stabbing in Squamish

RCMP say the incident occurred in downtown and are investigating

A man in his 60s was rushed to a Lower Mainland hospital in critical condition following what police are calling an alleged stabbing in downtown Squamish on Friday.

Police say they received a call that a man was stabbed in an apartment building on the 38000-block of Second Avenue on April 3. When officers arrived, they found multiple people helping a man “suffering from a possible stab wound.”

A second male with minor injuries was arrested by officers and transported to hospital. He has been released from custody and is facing a charge of aggravated assault.

He is expected to appear in North Vancouver court in July.

Officers say they believe the two knew each other, and this was an isolated incident.

Police are still investigating and are asking anyone with knowledge of the situation to call Squamish RCMP at 604-892-6100, or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, or go to website
