Stabbing victim hospitalized, police look for suspect

A stabbing victim was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries following an incident at an Eighth Street apartment Thursday evening.

New Westminster police say officers found a man suffering from stab wounds when they were called to the building in the 400 block about 9:30 p.m.

The NWPD's major crime unit has taken over the investigation. They are looking for a suspect described as a white male, 20 to 30 years old. He's about five-foot-11 with a slim build, short black hair, a moustache and goatee. He was wearing a dark hoodie with the hood pulled tight to his face.

Police said it is not believed to be a random act or to be gang related.
