A 28-year-old man was arrested after a man was stabbed at Metrotown SkyTrain station shortly after 9:15 p.m. Tuesday, say Burnaby RCMP.

The suspect was found a short time later, not far from the scene.

Officers who responded gave first aid to the victim, a man in his late 30s, who was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

The suspect is well known to police and is being held in custody while awaiting his court appearance.

It's still early in the investigation and police are still trying to determine whether the suspect and victim, both of no fixed address, knew each other.

Transit Police and security staff from Metropolis at Metrotown shopping center assisted Burnaby Mounties in responding to the incident.
