Moyan is charged with attempted murder, assault with a weapon, aggravated assault and robbery with a firearm. He remains in custody. Boucher and Jones are both charged with attempted murder, assault with a weapon, aggravated assault and robbery with a firearm. Jones also faces charges of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, use of a firearm while committing an indictable offence and assault with a weapon.

Boucher and Jones remain at large.

Boucher is white, stands 5-foot-7 and weighs about 195 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes. Jones is white, has brown eyes, stands 5-foot-10 and weighs about 160 pounds.

On the night of Aug. 16, just before 11 p.m., Salmon Arm Mounties and emergency medical crews responded to a Blind Bay home along Forest Drive, where they found a man bleeding heavily from apparent stab wounds. The victim showed up at the front door of the house, seeking help.

Police at the time said they believed the assault was a targeted attack carried out at a nearby car wash, where investigators logged physical evidence. The stabbing victim is a 30-year-old man from the Shuswap area who was taken to hospital by paramedics. His injuries were not considered to be life-threatening.

“Our investigators believe that as many as three suspects were involved in the physical confrontation, which resulted in the victim being stabbed multiple times,” Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey of the RCMP said in a police press release at the time.

Moyan was subsequently arrested in Chase with the help of the RCMP’s emergency response team, but Mounties continue to search for Boucher and Jones. The RCMP is warning the public not to approach either man and to call 911 if they are spotted.
