A 37-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder after he allegedly stabbed a woman multiple times outside a grocery store last week.

According to the Campbell River RCMP, Damien Soroczynski, who has a Criminal Record out of Ontario and is relatively new to the area, was arrested without incident on Friday.

He is accused of stabbing a woman in her 40s multiple times in the Real Canadian Superstore parking lot shortly after 9 p.m, on June 2nd.
