A man was taken to hospital after he was stabbed Thursday evening in Burnaby’s Central Park.
RCMP said Friday the incident happened around 8:30 p.m. in the park near Patterson SkyTrain Station, the same park where an elderly man was seriously assaulted earlier this month, and where 13-year-old Marrisa Shen was killed and found dead just over a year ago.
Police believe the stabbing was an isolated incident and that there is no risk to the public.
Two suspects were involved. The first is described as a First Nations man, about 40 to 45 years old, six feet tall with a slim build. He was wearing a red shirt and blue pants.
The second suspect is described as a white man, also about 40 to 45 years old, with a slim build. He was wearing a white shirt and blue shorts.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999 or Crime Stoppers.
