Two teens were arrested and released after a man was found suffering from a “significant slash wound” to his arm near the North Vancouver SeaBus terminal on Wednesday.

Officers found the 26-year-old victim around 145 Chadwick Court just after 9:15 p.m., provided first aid and called paramedics, who brought him to the hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspects had fled the scene before their arrival, police said in a Friday news release, but officers later found two boys — 13 and 17 — who met witness descriptions by Main Street and Highway 1.
