One man remains in hospital with significant but non-life-threatening injuries after being assaulted with a weapon early this morning.
Police were called to the 4200 block of Santa Anita Avenue just before 1 a.m. on May 11, 2022, for a report that a man had been stabbed outside of a residence. He remains in hospital. While no arrests have been made, this assault does not appear to be random.
Investigators are currently canvassing the neighbourhood and are seeking any witnesses or dashcam footage leading up to or just after the assault occurred, around 12:50 a.m.
“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 Cst. Markus Anastasiades. “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.
File No: 22-8858
