Detectives are looking to identify a person of interest as they investigate a stabbing Friday night that left a man with potentially life-altering injuries.
Officers were in the process of investigating a call of a man with a gun in Beacon Hill Park just before 10 p.m., when they were also called to a multi-unit residential temporary housing building in the 1900-block of Douglas Street for a 911 call reporting a man had been stabbed.
Police arrived and found someone suffering from stab wounds.
Officers provided immediate first aid until paramedics arrived a short time later and the man was taken to hospital.
Investigators are asking for public help to identify a person of interest in the case. He is described as a Caucasian man at 5’11” and was last seen wearing a grey hooded sweater with black and blue writing on the front, baggy dark-coloured pants, white and black running shoes, a black hat, and a black bandana with white colouring. He was carrying a dark-coloured shoulder bag.
Anyone with information about this incident who has not yet spoken to officers is asked to call VicPD at 250-995-7654 ext. 1 or report anonymously through Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
