One man is in hospital with serious, but not life-threatening injuries after being assaulted with a weapon outside a home in the 4200-block of Santa Anita Avenue in Saanich.
Saanich police report that the man was stabbed around 12:50 a.m. on Wednesday (May 11), noting that the attack does not appear to be random. No arrests have been made and police are canvassing the neighbourhood looking for witnesses as well as security camera or dashcam footage leading up to or around the time of the assault.
“While the victim was initially uncooperative with police in providing information, the priority for responding officers was to administer first-aid and immediate care,” said Saanich police Const. Markus Anastasiades in a release. “Further attempts to speak to him are being made once he is medically able to, which we anticipate will be later today.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Saanich Police Department at 250-475-4321. You can also report anonymously through the Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
