Comox Valley RCMP are asking witnesses to come forward after an apparent stabbing in Cumberland on November 14.

Police say 911 operators were notified at approximately 12 p.m. about a man suffering from apparent stab wounds on Dunsmuir Avenue in Cumberland.

Emergency responders arrived soon after and provided first aid to the victim.

“The victim was unable to provide investigators with very much information before he was
taken by emergency health services to receive medical attention,” said Cst. Monika
Terragni, Comox Valley RCMP Media Relations Officer.

“Although this investigation is in the very early stages, investigators do not believe this incident was random.”

Police are asking locals to review dashcam footage, home security footage, or commercial business surveillance from the time leading up to 12 p.m. on November 14.

The 32-year-old male victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries from the suspected stabbing.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Comox Valley RCMP at (250) 338-1321 and refer to file #2020-18623.
