Burnaby RCMP say a 53 year old man is under arrest and may be facing murder charges in connection with a double stabbing at a local homeless camp last night.
Staff Sargent Jeff Ausmus says they got the call shortly after 8 pm Monday night at a wooded area in a ravine, behind the 6800 block of Rumble Street.
“We did locate one victim who was transported to hospital, then secondly we did locate a second victim, who was unfortunately, deceased at the time.”
