Four people were arrested in Coquitlam on June 28, 2022, following an attack that sent a 41-year-old man to hospital with stab wounds.

A 41-year-old man was sent to hospital with stab wounds late last night (June 28) stemming from an altercation between two groups in Coquitlam's city centre.

RCMP arrested four people, and believe the attack was "not random" nor linked to any greater conflict in the region.

"No charges have been laid at this time, and therefore no names can be released," explains RCMP spokesperson Const. Deanna Law in a news release today (June 29).

After 11 p.m. on Tuesday, Mounties were called to the scene on 1100-block Johnson Street — located near Coquitlam Centre mall and Coquitlam Central SkyTrain station. 

The victim was found with non-life threatening injuries from apparent stab wounds, and was taken to hospital for treatment.

As the altercation isn't believed to be random, Law says the Coquitlam detachment's investigational support team (IST) is taking lead on the case and is currently collecting evidence.

She adds the IST needs the public's help, specifically to provide witness accounts and dashcam or video footage before, during or after the altercation.

Anyone with more information is encouraged to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550, anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or go online to
