Two 17-year-old Surrey residents were hospitalized on Sunday night after being stabbed during a fight that broke out on a party bus.

According to Burnaby RCMP, the incident took place just before midnight on Sunday, when police responded to a report of a fight between the passengers of a party bus that was stopped on the side of the Trans-Canada Highway at Gaglardi Way in Burnaby.

Police said witnesses at the scene reported that passengers from the bus exited the vehicle and entered into “a physical confrontation on the highway where two young men suffered stab wounds.”

A 17-year-old Surrey male was taken to hospital with “serious and life-threatening injuries,” as a result of the incident, police said. “A second 17-year-old Surrey male was taking to hospital with minor injuries.”

Police believe the bus had been travelling through Burnaby from Vancouver to Surrey at the time of the altercation, and they believe the incident was targeted.

Now, Burnaby RCMP said its Investigative Support Team has assumed conduct of this investigation and are looking to speak with anyone who may have witnessed the attack.

Anyone with information or dashcam video that would assist this investigation is asked to please contact Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999.
