Victoria man stabbed multiple times refused help despite possible life-threatening injuries


Investigators with VicPD are searching for witnesses and/or CCTV footage after a person was stabbed multiple times in downtown Victoria Wednesday morning.

According to police, it’s believed the stabbing occurred in the 1500-block of Quadra Street, near Pandora Avenue.

BC Emergency Health Services (BCEHS) contacted VicPD just before 4:30 a.m. October 5th, stating that they were responding to a call that a person had been stabbed multiple times.

When the victim was located, officers noticed the man had wrapped multiple stab wounds with improvised dressings.

Police said the man initially refused to speak with officers and turned down medical treatment.

Paramedics arrived, and with the help of VicPD, they were able to convince the man to let them see the stab wounds on his arms and chest.

Officers were forced to apprehend the man after he continued to refuse help despite the injuries being considered life-threatening.

Paramedics transported the man to hospital and his injuries are now considered non-life-threatening.

Anyone with CCTV footage or who was in the Quadra Street area between Pandora Avenue and Mason Street, or may have any information about this incident, call VicPD at (250) 995-7654.
