VicPD seek help from public in Sept. stabbing, robbery investigation

Investigators in Victoria state are seeking the public’s help as they continue their investigation into the September stabbing and robbery.

Officers from the Vic Police Department were initially called to the 300 block of Gorge Road East just after 2 a.m. on Sept. 18 after a security guard discovered a man with multiple injuries, including life-threatening stab wounds.

Police and paramedics were called to the scene and the man was taken to hospital where his injuries were not life-threatening, according to a news release.

The victim told detectives he was in the area when he was approached by two men and a woman. The victim bought cigarettes from the woman and started walking away when two men attacked him from behind, kicking and kicking him.

The victim attempted to stop a passing car, which caused the attacker to stop and flee the area. The victim then sat down and realized he had been stabbed. One of the male attackers then returned, hacked off the backpack from the victim’s shoulders, and fled the area again.

A security guard spotted the victim about 30 minutes after the attack and called 911 while providing first aid.

Police are seeking any information the public can provide about the incident and the two male suspects.

One suspect is described as an Aboriginal man, about 35 years old, with short hair and dark clothing at the time of the attack. The second suspect is described as a white male, tall, with light hair and wearing a cloth mask with a pattern on it at the time of the attack.

Anyone with information is asked to contact VicPD at 250-995-7654, ext. 1, or report anonymously to Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
