A male has been taken to hospital under the medical health act after stabbing himself at the New Westminster SkyTrain station just after 11 o’clock last night.
Staff Sergeant Steve Meaden with New Westminster police says they arrived in time to take the man to hospital with only minor injuries.
“New Westminster Police received a call from the member of the public indicating that a friend had stabbed himself at the 8th Street SkyTrain station, as a result, officers responded.”
Meaden says this type of incident, where someone tries to injure themselves happens on a daily basis.
He adds if anyone witnesses an incident where someone is injuring themselves, they should stand a distance away and then call 9-1-1.
