West Vancouver police are asking for the public's help in gathering information about an assault with a weapon Saturday evening at Ambleside Park that left a 17-year-old male in hospital with serious injuries.
Four suspects were taken into custody near the scene but have since been released pending the investigation.
The incident happened east of the concession stand around 6:15 p.m. PT. It is believed the teen was stabbed.
