VicPD have released a photo from surveillance footage of a suspect they say stabbed another man Tuesday night.

The stabbing incident occurred just before 8:30 p.m. in the 900-block of Pandora Avenue and was captured by a nearby surveillance camera.

The stabbing victim was being helped by a passerby when officers arrived and he was refusing help from paremedics.

Officers assisted the paramedics to de-escalate the man so he could be treated for his injuries. The man was transported to hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

The suspect seen on surveillance is described as a Caucasian man standing about 6′ tall with a slim build. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a black ball cap, a long sleeve black hoodie, baggy blue jeans, black tennis shoes with white near the soles, and white gloves.

He was last seen carrying a black backpack.

Anyone with information is asked to call VicPD at 250-995-7654 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
