Victoria, BC – Patrol officers are asking for your assistance as we continue to investigate a Tuesday night stabbing.

Patrol officers were called to the 900-block of Pandora Avenue just before 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 20th for a report that a man had been stabbed and was refusing medical assistance from BC Emergency Health Services paramedics. When officers arrived, they discovered the victim with a stab wound being attended to by a passerby.

The stabbing was captured on nearby surveillance video.

At the time of the incident he was wearing a black ball cap, a long sleeve black hoodie, baggy blue jeans, black tennis shoes with white near the soles, and white gloves.
