Police, ambulance crews and firefighters showed up at the scene.

Two teenaged girls are recovering after a frightening incident this weekend near English Bay Beach.

Reports that two teens had been stabbed near Beach Avenue and Denman Street were called in to police around 11 p.m. on Sunday, May 28, according to Vancouver Police Department (VPD) spokesperson Const. Tania Visintin. When police arrived they found and attended to the two teenage girls.

"They were both taken to hospital for injuries that were serious, but not life-threatening," she tells V.I.A. in an email.

A 17-year-old male, suspected in the incident, was located and arrested, she adds. It's unknown if he knew the girls.

Police are still investigating the incident.

@keilijay It was our last night in Canada and we went to crab a bite. When we were done with dinner and looked over the patio, English bay looked like a scene from action movie. As we heard, two girls got stabbed. Hope they’ll be okay 🥺 It’s terrifing what a night out in Vancouver could be like. #englishbay #englishbaybeach #vancouver #vancouverbc #crazystuff ♬ Bad Boys (Theme from Cops) - Inner Circle
