A teenaged boy from South Vancouver could face criminal charges, after a woman and her dog were stabbed with a knife near the Marine Drive Canada Line Station on Friday night.
Vancouver Police were called just after 10 p.m. Friday after the teen suspect allegedly pulled a knife on the dog owner, stabbing her in the hand and then stabbing the dog.
“When our officers arrived, they found the victim and the dog bleeding heavily. The suspect was walking near the crime scene,” says Sergeant Steve Addison. “The suspect was arrested and taken to jail, while the victim and dog received first aid for their injuries.”
The victim, 32, was transported to hospital for treatment. Her dog, a medium-sized mixed-breed, was taken to an emergency veterinarian. Both are expected to make a full recovery.
The 14-year-old suspect has been released from custody pending a future court date.
