Ridge Meadows RCMP searching for five men involved in stabbing at Golden Ears

The men fled the park in a black sedan

Police are looking for five men following a stabbing Wednesday afternoon, June 9, at Golden Ears Provincial Park.

At about 5:45 p.m. Ridge Meadows RCMP were called to the park after an argument between a man camping with his family at the North Beach campground and a group of five men at a nearby campsite got out of control and resulted in a 23-year-old man being stabbed twice in the abdomen.

The five suspects, who were not registered campers at the park and were, police believe, simply using the site to eat and drink, fled the area in a black sedan.
