      A woman was seriously injured after she attempted to break up a fight between a male and a female at UBC's Point Grey campus.

      Just after 4 p.m. today (March 7), RCMP responded to a report about an assault with a weapon in the basement of the UBC Centre for Advanced Wood Processing (CAWP), located at 2424 Main Mall at the Point Grey campus of the University of British Columbia. CAWP is in the eastern section of the Forest Sciences Centre complex.

      A female victim, who had sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries, said that she had intervened in an altercation between a male and a female. She was taken to hospital for treatment.

      Police could not locate the suspect male and the other female victim at the scene; they had both seen running away from the area separately.

      The suspect is described as an Asian male in his mid-twenties who is 183 centimetres (six-feet) tall with short dark hair, dark eyes, and a square face.

      He has a deep voice with a slight accent (of unknown origin). According to police, he may have scratches on the right side of his face and neck, and he also smelled of cigarette smoke.

      He was last seen wearing a black puffy jacket (similar in style to Canada Goose), dark jeans, and white shoes.

      Any witnesses or anyone with information about this incident are asked to call University RCMP at 604-224-1322.
