A stabbing in downtown Kamloops has led police to cordon off Victoria Street between Sixth and Eighth avenues as they search for two suspects.
A witness told KTW they were near the Noble Pig Brewpub at 650 Victoria St. after 7 p.m. when Mounties swarmed the area.
“We heard an officer ask someone else on the patio if they saw the suspects,” the witness said. “We started talking about it and realized we did and let the officer know.”
The two suspects in the altercation that led to the stabbing in the area of Victoria Street and Sixth Avenue are two men wearing black hoodies and carrying backpacks. The witness walked right by them en route to the brewpub.
(KTW is not naming the witness due to safety concerns with respect to the suspects.)
The stabbing victim was taken to Royal Inland Hospital with multiple wounds, with injuries believed to be serious.
