Sidney/North Saanich RCMP are investigating an early morning stabbing at a North Saanich home that sent three people to hospital in serious condition.
The incident took place on Friday May 27th at a residence in the 10000-block of Derrick Road.
RCMP officers received a 911 call that multiple people had received serious injuries by someone who was still inside the home.
Arriving officers had to forcibly enter the residence. Once inside, they located three individuals who had been stabbed multiple times.
Police officers located the man believed to be responsible on scene and arrested him without incident.
Officers rendered first aid on the victims until the scene was deemed safe for paramedics, and all three victims were eventually transported to hospital.
Police said the victims are currently in serious but stable condition and are expected to survive the injuries.
“Responding officers relied on their training and de-escalation skills to take this very agitated and violent individual into custody. I am grateful that all first responders acted in a professional manner to bring this very volatile situation to a safe end,” Said Cpl Andres Sanchez, Media Liaison with Sidney/North Saanich RCMP.
RCMP say there is no danger to the public, and at this stage of the investigation, it’s believed that the man arrested is known to the victims. They also believe that this was an isolated incident.
The man arrested remains in police custody pending further court proceedings.
Police said they would not release any further information on the incident.
