File # 2023-15009

Shortly before 7:30 p.m. on May 17, 2023, frontline Richmond RCMP responded to the intersection of No. 3 Road and Westminster Highway after multiple reports of a group of people fighting.

Two victims were located and found suffering from injuries consistent with a knife attack – a 65-year old woman and a 27-year old man. Their injuries were considered serious but not life-threatening. Both are from Richmond.

Three suspects fled the scene prior to police arrival.

Police immediately set up a security perimeter and initiated a search. Two suspects were swiftly located and arrested by police. A knife was also recovered. The third suspect, a woman, was located and arrested a short time later. A 41-year old man from Richmond, a 32-year old man from Vancouver, and a 25-year old woman from Burnaby are in police custody.

These attacks do not appear to be random. The victims and suspects are known to police.

Richmond RCMP GIS (General Investigation Section) is actively investigating this incident. We ask the public for any information and/or video footage to contact us at 604-278-1212 and quote file #2023-15009.
