The 39-year-old victim of a stabbing in Parksville is being ‘uncooperative’ with investigators, according to Oceanside RCMP.

The incident occurred this past weekend around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 7th in the 900-block of Fairdowne Road.

Oceanside RCMP said they have received a phone call from the BC Ambulance Service (BCAS) advising them about a man who had been stabbed multiple times.

The victim allegedly became involved in a physical altercation with two unknown males.

A friend of the victim, a 38-year-old woman, contacted BCAS about the stabbing before fleeing the scene due to her outstanding arrest warrants.

The victim, who is recovering in hospital from multiple stab wounds to the lower back, has not been cooperative with investigators.

“Police do not believe this was a random incident. The exact location (crime scene) was not established due to the lack of detail from the victim and the original caller,” said Cpl. Jesse Foreman of the Oceanside RCMP.

“The Oceanside RCMP wish to speak to the original complainant or anyone who may have witnessed, or has information regarding this stabbing.”

Anyone with information on the incident are being asked to contact the Oceanside RCMP at 250-248-6111.
