Two young offenders have been arrested in connection with a vicious stabbing last month that sent a Port Coquitlam youth to hospital.

Charges of assault with a weapon and breach of a condition were laid against one of the suspects while a second person was charged with aggravated assault and two counts of breach of a condition.

Because the suspects are youths, they cannot be identified and police said they will not be releasing any more information.

The incident occurred at around 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 13 at the intersection of Shaughnessy Street and Lions Way. The victim was in serious condition but was expected to recover.
