Stabbing homicide in New Westminster

A suspect was being sought following a stabbing Saturday night in New Westminster that resulted in a man's death.

Police were called to the 500 block of Third Avenue just after 10 p.m. Saturday as the victim was taken to hospital where he died at 5:44 a.m. Sunday. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said witnesses saw a man running from the scene. He is described as an Asian male in his mid-20s, about five-foot-five with short black hair, muscular build and wearing a black muscle shirt and grey shorts.

"Investigators are attempting to conduct a neighbourhood canvass to obtain any information that may assist in locating the suspect and help determine a motive for this stabbing," said Sgt. Jennifer Pound in a press release.
