Stabbing on city bus takes man to hospital – BC

One man is in custody and another is sent to the hospital with life-threatening injuries after a robbery and stabbing in a transit bus on Christmas Eve.

Shortly after 1:30 pm on Monday, two men began fighting on a city bus near East 12th and Kingsway.

A number of passengers, witnessing the fight, drew 9-1-1.

During the confusion, one of the men picked up a knife and stabbed the other man.

Police responded immediately and located the victim – a 60-year-old man – and sent him to the hospital.

The suspect – also in his 60s – was identified and the police caught up with him, taking him into custody.

He is facing an assault charge with a gun.

No word on a motive for the attack, or if the two knew each other.
