Two people were injured in separate stabbing incidents in Campbell River on Tuesday night.
Around 6 p.m. on November 12th, a man in his 30s was stabbed near the Radiant Life Community Church on Cypress Street.
He sustained non life threatening injuries and police were able to locate a suspect who is now in custody.
In a second incident just after 10 p.m., a man in his 20s sustained several stab wounds after an unprovoked attack by a man who has not yet been identified.
The victim was treated for non life threatening injuries at Campbell River Hospital.
The suspect in this incident is described as a man standing 5’7″ tall, with shoulder length grey hair and wearing a grey jacket and jeans.
“These stabbings are very serious incidents,” said Cst. Maury Tyre.
“Removing individuals from the street who would do harm to others in this community is a top priority and any assistance the public can provide in these matters is greatly appreciated.”
Anyone who witnessed either incident or has video surveillance of the latter is asked to contact Campbell River RCMP at 250-286-6221.
