FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Fort St. John RCMP received a call yesterday at around 5:30 p.m. that a man had walked into the hospital with multiple stab wounds.

With information the police were given, officers attended a house at the 8900 block of 87th Ave to prepare to obtain a search warrant. When police arrived a 45 year-old man was arrested outside of the residence and taken into custody.

Officers then proceeded to another house in the 8200 block of 87th Street where a second suspect was also arrested. While police were at the residence, they saw a car with two more suspects inside. A vehicle stop was conducted on 87th Street north of 87th Ave and then two 24 year old men were arrested by police.

1 suspect was released without going through the court process. The 3 others do remain in custody and 2 are being held for investigation. The 3rd will appear in Provincial Court later today.

The victim has received treatment at the hospital for serious but non-life threatening injuries and is currently in stable condition.
