NANAIMO, B.C. - RCMP are investigating a stabbing near a crab dock in downtown Nanaimo that has put a woman in hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The Mounties say in a release that emergency responders found the 30-year-old woman lying on the ground on Wednesday night.

They say there was a young man nearby being restrained by several bystanders.

A 17-year-old suspect has been taken into custody.

Const. Gary O'Brien says in the statement that investigators have not identified a relationship between the victim and suspect.

He says without the help of bystanders, the woman may not have survived.
