A man facing two counts of aggravated assault in connection with May 27 stabbings at a west side Vancouver Airbnb suite was released on bail June 24.

Arvin Pasha appeared by video before Vancouver provincial court Judge Bonnie Craig as his parents looked on.

He's accused of assaulting two people, court documents said.

The incident happened at a residence near Third Avenue and Arbutus.

Vancouver Police Department spokesperson Const. Tania Visintin said Pasha was arrested the day of the incident.

The judge released Pasha on non-financial conditions that he have no contact with the victims, live with his mother in New Westminster, abide by a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, abstain from intoxicants, not have weapons and follow directions of a bail supervisor.
