Victoria, BC – Major Crime Unit (MCU) investigators are asking for witnesses to come forward after a person was stabbed multiple times in the 1000-block of Pandora Avenue last night.

Just after 9:30 p.m. last night, Patrol officers were called to a residence in the 1400-block of Harrison Street for a report that Victoria Fire Department firefighters were administering medical care to a person with multiple stab wounds. Officers arrived and discovered a victim being treated for potentially life-threatening stab wounds.

BC Emergency Health Services paramedics attended and transported the victim to hospital. After medical treatment, the stabbing victim’s injuries now appear to be non-life-threatening.

Investigators, including officers with the Integrated Canine Service and VicPD’s Forensic Identification Section (FIS), responded and located a potential crime scene in the 1000-block of Pandora Avenue.

Investigators learned that the victim was sitting on a bench in the 1000-block of Pandora Avenue when they were confronted by a man who then randomly attacked them. The victim fled the area and, upon getting to safety, discovered they had been stabbed multiple times.

The suspect is described as a man standing five feet, five inches tall with a medium build, facial hair, hair past his ears, and what witnesses describe as an unkempt appearance.

There have been no arrests.

MCU investigators are asking anyone with information about this incident to call the VicPD Report Desk at (250) 995-7654 extension 1.
