A 25-year-old Langley man was stabbed multiple times during an altercation on Halloween night in Langley City.

Around 1 a.m. Sunday, during a party at Douglas Crescent and 203 Street, a fight broke out between two men who know each other, said Langley RCMP Sgt. Ravi Pawar.

One of the men pulled out a knife and stabbed the other. Police rushed to the scene and the accused, a 23-year-old Langley man, was quickly arrested at that location, said Pawar.

B.C. Ambulance rushed the victim to Royal Columbian. His injuries have been upgraded from serious to not life threatening and he is expected to recover, said police. The pair are known to police.

The accused was held in jail over the weekend. He is likely facing charges of assault with a weapon.

Police were kept busy on Halloween night.

In total, police attended 170 calls on Halloween, about double for an average Saturday night, said Pawar.

A majority of them were for fireworks and being drunk in public.
