North Shore stabbing lands woman in hospital
A Kamloops woman was rushed to hospital with multiple stab wounds early on the morning of Wednesday, Aug. 10, after an apparent knife attack in North Kamloops.
Emergency crews were called to the Tim Hortons outlet at 481 Tranquille Rd. at about 12:30 a.m.
A woman, believed to be in her 40s, had been stabbed multiple times in the back.
Witnesses said she was treated at the scene by four bystanders until paramedics arrived.
A police-dog unit was called out, but was unable to track down any suspects; however, a knife was found in a parking lot across the street.
Mounties believe the suspects in the stabbing are two women — one blonde and one brunette.
A witness in the area said he noticed an unusually high number of prostitutes along Tranquille Road prior to the stabbing.
There has been no update on the victim's condition.
