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". 

Two of the men allegedly involved in the fight fled the area in a vehicle that was boxed in by police near Kingsway and Sussex Avenue.

A 33-year-old man found inside the vehicle was taken to hospital for treatment of stab wounds.

His injuries are believed to be superficial. The second man in the vehicle, who is 40-years-old, was not hurt.
