A 25-year-old man is in Hospital after a stabbing incident in Abbotsford yesterday evening.
Abbotsford Police says they responded to a call just before 7pm in the 32100 block of Mt. Waddington Avenue.
Fire Crews and BC Ambulance arrived shortly after, he was then transported by air to a Vancouver hospital.
Police say his injuries are serious but non-life threatening.
It’s believed the actions between two male suspects and the victim escalated from a verbal confrontation to a physical fight.
Police say the suspects and victim know each other and the altercation was not random.
Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call Abbotsford RCMP.
Earlier in the evening, a pedestrian was killed in a collision with a vehicle.
A woman was hit by a car at the intersection of James Street and South Fraser Way at around 5:45 this evening.
Abbotsford Police Cst. Paul Walker says the woman wasn’t crossing the street at the crosswalk when she was hit.
“At this time, early indications suggest that the pedestrian was not in the marked crosswalk and therefore may be a contributing factor to the collision.”
Walker says the victim was wearing dark clothing, potentially making it harder for the driver of the vehicle to see her.
“So the clothing that we’re seeing in this collision and other ones that we’ve seen in the last couple weeks, pedestrians are still wearing dark clothing at time of night.”
Walker says the roads are dangerous this time of year, and suggests pedestrians wear bright coloured, reflective clothing when walking the streets.
The driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with police.
Nine pedestrians have been killed already this year in Vancouver, and eight others in Surrey.
