Teen stabbed in Queensborough

An 18-year-old boy is expected to recover from injuries suffered when he was stabbed at a home in Queensborough Tuesday afternoon.

New Westminster police said they found the teen suffering from a significant stab wound after they were called to a residence in the 1300 block of Salter Street about 2:10 p.m. He was taken to hospital and as of Thursday was in serious but stable condition.

Initial investigation by the NWPD major crime unit indicates it was a targeted attack but it isn't know if there were any gang connections.

Investigators are looking for three male suspects. The first was 19 to 20 years old with a medium build. He was wearing a grey hoodie and carrying a knife. The second is 19, small build and wearing a black long sleeve shirt and jeans. The third is 20, about 180 pounds, brown hair and hazel eyes.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Det.-Const. Dave Dorazio at 604-525-5411.
