Staff Sgt. Simon Pillay said police received a 911 call that led them to a residence on the street that runs off First Avenue.

Upon arrival, officers found a 39-year-old male with stab wounds. He was taken to nearby Royal Inland Hospital, where he later died as a result of his injuries. 

Nearly four hours later, at 2 p.m., police arrested a 37-year-old male in connection with the stabbing death. 

"There is currently very little information that can be provided to the public at this time; however, based on our current understanding of this incident, there is no danger to the public,” Pillay said, noting the man arrested and the stabbing victim were known to each other.”
