Young man stabbed near Richmond Public Library

Victim found bloodied near Richmond City Hall
Richmond Cultural Centre, where the initial altercation that led to a stabbing is believed to have taken place

Richmond Public Library and city hall provided the unusual scenes for a serious crime Tuesday afternoon.

Just after 2 p.m., Mounties were called to the Minoru Boulevard and Granville Avenue area where two men were, apparently, involved in an altercation which led to a stabbing near the library.

The young male victim, who’s under the age of 19 say police, was subsequently found near Richmond City Hall, while the stabbing suspect had fled the area on foot.

The victim was taken to hospital by ambulance, where he was in a stable condition and was recovering. Police say the victim is cooperating with the investigation.

Police are still working to determine a suspect description, and are reviewing surveillance footage from the area. The incident is not believed to be random.
