VicPD are seeking the public’s assistance following reports of a man being stabbed in the area of the Fort and Moss Street intersection last Sunday.

Just before 3 a.m. on July 28th, officers received a call to the Royal Jubilee Hospital for a report that a man had been stabbed and was seeking medical assistance – though there was a pair travelling together at the time of the incident, only one male victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The victim and his friend reported that they had become separated after travelling by skateboard eastbound on Fort Street that evening – it was close to the intersection of Fort and Moss Streets that a man unknown to the victim then attacked him, and the reported stabbing occurred.

It was reported that the victim then was able to push his attacker to the ground and flee to his friend’s nearby residence, located in the 1400-block of Fort Street – it was there that a couple unknown to him let him into the building, and he was transported to hospital.

The suspect is described as a Filipino male.

VicPD is currently investigating and are looking to speak with not only the couple who let the victim into the building, but also any other witnesses that may have been in the area at the time.

Officers are also requesting any surveillance photos or video between midnight and 3 a.m. on the morning of Sunday, July 28th from the Fort and Moss Street areas that may have been active at the time of the incident.

If you have information please call (250) 995-7654. To report what you know anonymously, please call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477
