Chilliwack RCMP are investigating a stabbing incident outside the Cheam Leisure Centre Friday evening.

But the victim is not co-operating with the police.

“No one knows what happened except the victim, who is being uncooperative,” RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said.

RCMP officers responded to a 9-1-1 call at about 5:30 p.m. and arrived to find a male emerging from the bushes outside the centre with a 4- to 5-inch stab wound in the lower abdomen.

“Fortunately, it missed all the internal organs,” Hollingsworth said.

But so far only a few witnesses are cooperating with police investigators, she said, and “nobody really knows what happened.”

The victim was not identified by police.

The RCMP investigation continues.
