On Thursday night, at around 10:20pm Burnaby RCMP officers were called to Silver Drive in the Metrotown after reports of three men fighting. 

Via release, Mounties say "It’s believed two men were leaving a nearby restaurant when they got into a physical fight with a third man, who was not known to them, in a parking lot. A knife was pulled during the incident".
