VicPD detectives continue to investigate a stabbing and robbery that occurred in September, but need more information.
On September 18th just after 2 a.m. in the 300-block of Gorge Road, a security guard discovered a man suffering from multiple potentially life-threatening stab wounds and other injuries.
Police say they arrived and located the victim and the security guard who had found him providing immediate medical attention to the man who had been stabbed.
Paramedics arrived shortly after police, took over medical treatment of the victim and transported him to the hospital.
It was determined by paramedics that although significant, the man’s wounds were considered non-life threatening.
Police say the victim was approached by two men and a woman. He reported to police that he had bought cigarettes from the woman and continued walking. That’s when the two men attacked him.
According to police, the victim tried to flag down a passing car which caused the assailants to stop attacking.
The victim told police that once they fled the scene, he sat on nearby stairs and realized he had been stabbed.
Police say one of the attackers returned to cut the man’s backpack from him and fled the scene once more.
According to police, the security guard found the victim approximately 30 minutes after the attack and called 911 immediately.
Police say there are two suspects.
The first suspect is described as an Indigenous man, around 35-years-old, with a short “buzz cut” style haircut. He was wearing dark clothing.
The second suspect is described as a tall, heavy-set Caucasian man, with light hair, who was wearing a cloth mask with a design on it.
This stabbing and robbery remains under investigation by VicPD.
