Police say the man, who is known to police, was arrested at his home without incident and remains in police custody. In a press release issued Wednesday, police say tips from the public helped lead them to the arrest.
The incident happened on the evening of Nov. 5, when a 59-year-old Vancouver man was stabbed – without provocation -- while crossing paths with a stranger on the B.C. Mountaineering Club trail, which runs adjacent to the Grouse Grind.
The attacker fled, and the victim made his way down the trail until he came across a group of hikers who provided first aid and contacted police.
The victim was transferred to Lions Gate Hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
