Teen stabbed multiple times in fight over vape pen

BY Connect News, Oct 12, 2022 9:37 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Two Vancouver teens were hospitalized last night following a violent encounter on the city’s west side, which Vancouver Police believe started when one youth accused the other of stealing a vape pen.

One teen suffered multiple stab wounds and required surgery.

Several witnesses reported seeing two people fighting near a bus stop at Dunbar and West 41st Avenue around 8:30 p.m. When VPD officers responded, they located a 17-year-old suffering from a number of life-threatening wounds. The victim was bleeding profusely, and a VPD officer applied pressure to the wounds to stem the bleeding.

The victim was taken to hospital by ambulance and is expected to survive.

Police later located an 18-year-old suspect in East Vancouver, who was also suffering injuries that required hospitalization. Those injuries are not life-threatening.
