Victoria, BC –A man is in custody and officers are investigating a double stabbing that sent two to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries last night.

Just after 10:30 p.m. last night officers were called to the 900-block of Pandora Avenue for a report of a large fight. When they arrived they discovered two men nearby with non-life-threatening stab wounds. These men were transported to hospital.  A male suspect had reportedly fled the location.

Just after 5 a.m. this morning, officers re-attended the 900-block of Pandora Avenue after it was reported that the suspect had returned to the area. Officers located the suspect and effected an arrest which required the deployment  of a conductive energy weapon. The suspect was transported to hospital for assessment and once cleared, was transported to VicPD cells.

This investigation remains ongoing.
