Two men and a woman have been arrested after two teens were slashed outside the Main Street SkyTrain station on Sunday evening, Vancouver police said.

Sgt. Randy Fincham said a teen boy and girl, both 15, had just been in the middle of a fight at Main Street and Terminal Avenue.

Police were responding to reports of bear spray being used — it’s unclear who sprayed it — but arrived to find the teens badly hurt.

The girl was suffering from a neck slash wound and the boy suffered a slash on his arm. Both were taken to hospital.

About four hours later, two men and a woman were arrested. Fincham said the 20-year-old men face charges of aggravated assault and the 19-year-old woman faces a charge of obstruction.

He added there might be more people involved in the fight, believed to have escalated from an argument.
