A teenager is recovering after being stabbed at a Vancouver fast food restaurant on Commercial and Broadway.

Vancouver Police say that a 16-year-old boy was stabbed by another teenager inside the restaurant on Tuesday.

Vancouver Police were able to ID and arrest the suspect who has been charged with aggravated assault.

VPD told Daily Hive that the suspect and victim were known to each other, and that a motive is something they hope to figure out through an investigation.

While police didn’t specifically say which fast food restaurant the stabbing took place in, the three main fast food restaurants in the area are Subway, McDonald’s and A&W. There are also several coffee shops.

Police initially shared the news in a tweet.

Based on the replies to the tweet, it seems that some in Vancouver are becoming numb to violent crime in the city, and at the way violent criminals are being handled.

“Another stabbing in Vancouver,” tweeted someone in response.

The news comes a day after a suspect was sentenced in connection with a stabbing that took place inside of a Tim Hortons earlier this year.
