One person was stabbed and four people were arrested after a large brawl in New Westminster earlier this month.

According to New Westminster Police, the incident took place on April 10 around 8 pm, when officers responded to a report of a large fight between approximately 30 youth.

Upon their arrival, officers located armed suspects who had originally fled the scene using public transit. “All four suspects were arrested and their guardians notified,” police said.

The victim was located soon after and was transported to local hospital with what police described as serious injuries.

Police said this week that the department’s Major Crime Unit has taken conduct of the investigation.

“We’re appealing for anyone who witnessed this assault or knows anything about the circumstances around this assault to contact us,” said NWPD Sgt. Sanjay Kumar. “Witness accounts, as well as video or any social media posts connected to this event are of interest to investigators.”

Any witnesses who have yet to speak to police are asked to contact the department at 604-525-5411.
