A 25-year-old man was airlifted to hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening, injuries after he was stabbed on Wednesday evening.
Police were called at about 6:30 p.m. to a residence in the 32100 block of Mt. Waddington Avenue in west Abbotsford, east of Clearbrook Road.
The victim was transported by air ambulance to a Vancouver-area hospital.
Const. Paul Walker said early indications are that an argument between two men and the victim escalated into a physical altercation. He said police believe all three knew one another, and the incident is not random.
Walker said the incident is not connected to the ongoing Townline Hill conflict in west Abbotsford which has seen two gangs battling for drug turf, resulting in several drive-by shootings and the death of innocent man Ping Shun Ao, 74, on Sept. 2.
Police are also investigating an unrelated fatal pedestrian accident in Abbotsford at South Fraser Way and James Street that occurred shortly on Wednesday night shortly before the stabbing
Anyone with information about the stabbing should call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225, text 222973 (abbypd) or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
