Vancouver police are looking for a man they think is responsible for last night’s slashing in Stanley Park.
It happened just before 11:00 p.m., somewhere between Second and Third Beach.
Officers responded to a report a 33-year-old Vancouver man had been slashed in the neck.
The man was taken to hospital and received stitches.
His injuries are not considered life-threatening.
Police contained the park and found a man matching the description of the suspect provided by a witness.
Investigators now say they have questioned the man and he has since been released without charges.
Police are now looking for a man in his 20’s who has a medium complexion, is 5’5” tall and has a slim build.
The man was wearing all dark clothing, baggy pants, a baseball cap, a dark backpack and a grey and white camouflage bandana over his face.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
