“The dispute turned violent, and a 19-year-old was stabbed and suffered serious injuries,” a police statement says.

The teen remains in hospital in a stable condition.

Another teen was punched during the fight and suffered minor injuries. Police say he was offered medical attention at the scene and declined it.

Police say the groups did not know each other.

They say the suspects, all young men, fled the scene before officers arrived, but were arrested shortly after. The suspects remain in custody.

Vancouver Police is calling on witnesses to help with the investigation.

Any witnesses or anyone who captured the dispute on cell phone video is asked to call the VPD's Major Crime Unit at 604-717-2541 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
