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 www.solvecrime.ca
