A 20-year-old Port Coquitlam man was the victim of an early morning stabbing Sunday in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside.
Shortly after 3:30 a.m., Vancouver police responded to a call of a stabbing in the 200 block of East Hastings Street between Main Street and Gore Avenue. The attending officers arrived to find the PoCo man suffering from a single stab wound in his back.
