An altercation between two groups of campers resulted in one man allegedly being stabbed at the 11400 block of Gill Road on Sunday.

RCMP are looking for more information for their investigation of the incident which sent a 38-year-old Mission man to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

After police and ambulance personnel responded to the 11 a.m. complaint of the stabbing, a man was taken into RCMP custody and later released.

The following day, UFVRD Serious Crime Section officers and Lower Mainland Integrated Forensic Identification Section personnel gather evidence at the camping area as they continue to investigative the incident.

Police are asking the public for help if any witnesses can provide more information.

“The region is a popular off-road camping destination and police feel there are still many witnesses with further accounts to what happened,” said Cpl. Mike Rail of the RCMP.

Police believe the two groups of campers did not know each other prior to the altercation, but they suspect the victim was targeted.
