Vancouver police have identified the man who was slain overnight Thursday in the city's upscale neighbourhood of Yaletown.

Jeffrey Qi Feng Bian, 28, was found bleeding from stab wounds inside an 18th-floor condominium at 1067 Marinaside Cres. He died later in hospital.

Const. Lindsey Houghton said Friday Bian was a Vancouver resident and was known to police, but he didn't give out further detail about the victim.

Two women were in the suite when Bian was discovered at about 12:30 a.m. and were questioned by police Thursday.

Police have not said whether the pair are connected with the stabbing death.

It is the 14th homicide this year in Vancouver.
