VicPD’s Major Crime Unit (MCU) is asking witnesses to come forward after a victim sustained injuries in a stabbing that’s believed to be a random act of violence. 

At around 9:30 p.m. on Thursday night, VicPD were called to a residence in the 1400-block of Harrison Street. Victoria Fire Department firefighters were already on scene administering first aid to a victim of multiple stab wounds.

The victim was treated and transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

It is believed the incident occurred in the 1000-block of Pandora Avenue and MCU investigators, Integrated Canine Service (ICS) and VicPD’s Forensic Identification Section (FIS) attended the scene looking for evidence.

According to investigators, the victim was sitting on a bench in that area when a man confronted them and randomly attacked them. 

The victim reportedly fled the scene, got to safety and discovered they had been stabbed several times. 

VicPD describes the suspect in the investigation as a male who stands 5’5”, has a medium build, facial hair, hair past his ears, and an “unkempt appearance”.

No arrests have been made thus far. 

MCU investigators are asking anyone with information about this incident to call the VicPD Report Desk at (250) 995-7654.
