A teenager could face charges after a woman and her dog were stabbed in an attack outside a South Vancouver SkyTrain station.


Vancouver Police were called just after 10pm on Friday evening to the Marine Drive Canada Line SkyTrain station after a 14-year-old boy allegedly pulled a knife on the woman, stabbing her in the hand before stabbing the dog.


Sergeant Steve Addison said when officers arrived, they found the 32-year-old victim and her medium mixed-breed dog bleeding heavily.


He said the suspect was walking near the crime scene before being "arrested and taken to jail, while the victim and dog received first aid for their injuries."


The victim was taken to hospital while the dog was rushed to an emergency vet. Vancouver Police said both are expected to make a full recovery.


The 14-year-old suspect has since been released pending trial.
