Vancouver police have arrested a 23-year-old Surrey man in connection with three Friday night stabbings that appear to be related.

Police found a man with an apparent stab wound to the stomach on Keefer Street and Taylor Street at around 11 p.m. He was taken to hospital with what police call "serious, life-threatening injuries," the Vancouver police said in a Saturday morning news release.

Officers arrested their suspect without incident as he stood in front of the McDonald's at the International Village mall, on Pender Street and Abbott Street. He is facing assault and weapons-related charges.

Police found a second victim inside the McDonald's who had slash wounds on her hands and a third victim on West Pender Street with a slash wound to his neck. Both had minor injuries.

The slashings come weeks after a West End stabbing spree that sent seven people to hospital.
