The trio of stabbings follow a stabbing spree last weekend — in which a man was killed and three men were taken to hospital —and a robbery at a liquor store last week, during which the store manager was slashed on the arm and head.

Just before 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 1, emergency crews were called to the 300-block of Tranquille Road in North Kamloops for a report of a stabbing. Investigators found a 47-year-old man with minor injuries to his face.

At about 9:45 p.m., a 31-year-old man with stab wounds walked into a medical facility. Investigators believe he was stabbed in the 400-block of Tranquille Road.

At 1:30 a.m. on Thursday, a 35-year-old man walked into a medical facility with stab wounds. Mounties are working to determine where he was when he was injured.

“Every act of violence in our community is aggressively investigated,” RCMP Staff Sgt. Simon Pillay said. “In each case, the investigation is in its infancy and therefore there is little information that can be released.”

Pillay said at least one of the incidents involved a player in the city’s drug trade.

“Pandemic or not, RCMP Kamloops remain focused on delivering robust service on our core policing functions,” he said, urging anyone with information about any of the incidents to contact police at 250-828-3000.

Each of the incidents remains under investigation. No arrests have been made.
