Downtown Vancouver street closed off after Monday morning stabbing

Jul 11 2022, 7:03 pm

The Vancouver Police Department is investigating a stabbing that occurred around 8:30 am downtown on Monday.

The streets were closed off with caution tape between Homer and Smithe, and Smithe and Hamilton streets.

Police say that a victim has been taken to hospital with serious injuries and that a suspect has been taken into custody.

Police have not yet shared whether or not the victim and suspect were known to each other or if it was another random attack.

The VPD has been busy with random attacks in Vancouver in recent weeks. Just last week police were investigating a random machete attack that occurred in Vancouver as two people were loading luggage into a taxi cab.

Police will have more to share about Monday morning’s stabbing later today.
