Sooke RCMP responds to knife fight

All three suspects involved were later apprehended by police at their residence.

Sooke RCMP were called on Monday night  at 9 p.m. to Gelena Road in Sooke following a complaint of an altercation between three males involving knives.

The fight broke up and the combatants fled once police arrived at the scene, though all three men were tracked down to their respective residences in Sooke, police say.

Two of the men were found to have stab wounds, and one was transported to hospital by ambulance. The third male, though not stabbed, appeared to have been badly beaten, but refused medical treatment.

“The men involved in this incident are well known to each other and police. Despite the violent aspect of what occurred, we do not believe this incident posed a risk to public safety”, said Sooke RCMP S/Sgt. Jeff McArthur.

Despite their condition, all three men involved were uncooperative with police. The men are all from Sooke, are aged 19, 25, and 29. None sustained life threatening injuries.

The local RCMP detachment is continuing to investigate what occurred, and will pursue charges if appropriate.
