Stabbing victim mum on who sent him to hospital
Kamloops Rural RCMP continue to investigate a stabbing on the afternoon of Tuesday, March 15, that sent one man to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said emergency crews were called to the area of the 500-block of Cree Drive at 4:30 p.m. for a reported knife attack.
The 32-year-old male victim and his 19-year-old girlfriend were found a short time later walking along Kamloopa Road.
“The male had suffered apparent stab injuries to his chest area and there were also cuts to his neck,” Learned said.
The victim said he didn’t catch a glimpse of his attacker, but did tell police he owed someone money and thought that might have something to do with the attack.
“The victim did mention he was reluctant to say anything because he didn’t want to aggravate the situation between him and the people to whom he owes money,” Learned said.
“With the lack of information and lack of witnesses that have surfaced, we are basically at square one still.”
Learned said the victim is known to police.
Anyone with information is asked to call Kamloops Rural RCMP at 250-314-1800 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
