“These are all very serious incidents that strained the capacity of our front-line first responders,” said Const. Tania Visintin.

“With assistance from our forensic identification unit and major crime section, we are continuing to collect evidence that will hopefully lead us to solve each of these crimes.”

Around 10 p.m., officers in the Downtown Eastside responded after a 44-year-old man arrived at the local hospital with “serious stab wounds.”

Investigators believe the incident happened between Gore Street and Dunlevy Avenue. The suspect in that stabbing has not been identified.

When officers arrived, they found a 36-year-old with multiple stab wounds. Again, a suspect in that incident has not been identified.

Around 6:30 a.m., staff at a shelter near East Hastings and Carrall streets called police to report that a man in his 40s had been stabbed. The suspect in that case was still on the scene when police arrived and was arrested. The man’s injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.
