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.

After a search of the area, police found and arrested a 45-year-old woman trying to change her clothing nearby. Vancouver police said the woman is a suspect in the stabbing and is being held in police custody to face possible assault and weapons-related charges.

The motive behind the stabbing is unknown to police.

The victim was taken to hospital Sunday where he received stitches in his back and has since been released.
