Woman arrested, man refused to go to hospital: Ridge Meadows RCMP

A man sustained minor injuries Monday after apparently being stabbed with a pen, according to a resident of a downtown Maple Ridge apartment building where the incident occurred.

A woman was arrested at the scene, says Ridge Meadows RCMP.

Police responded to a reported stabbing in front of the Mariner’s Watch apartment building, 11600-block of 224th Street, at about 12:49 p.m.

Emergency crews also responded.

One person had minor injuries and didn’t require transport to hospital, said B.C. Emergency Health Services.

According to one resident, an altercation involved two others from the same building, with one of them being stabbed with a pen.

“Front-line officers arrived on scene within three minutes and the investigation has revealed that a dispute escalated with a woman allegedly stabbing a man,” said RCMP Const. Julie Klaussner.

Both parties are known to each other.

Police said the man was treated at the scene, but refused to go to hospital.

“This is an isolated incident and the investigation continues,” Klaussner added.
