On Wednesday, a man walked into a dollar-store on Seymour Street without a mask on. When a security guard asked him to mask up, the man pulled out a knife.
He fled and has yet to be arrested.
Last weekend, three people were stabbed within hours of each other on the same block of East Hastings Street between Carrall and Columbia. A fourth was stabbed nearby at the Strathcona Park homeless camp.
The first victim arrived by taxi at the St. Paul’s Hospital emergency room around 4 p.m.
Close to 10 p.m., a 37-year-old man staggered and collapsed on the sidewalk. He died later in hospital of stab wounds — Vancouver’s fourth homicide this year.
