Five staff members at a Victoria-area hotel are injured and a manager is in custody after a weekend stabbing.
Police in Saanich, say they were called to the Red Lion Inn late Saturday afternoon.
Sgt. Chris Horsley says the attack happened in the hotel's restaurant, which was closed between shifts at the time.
Horsley says it appears the attacker stabbed several employees in the restaurant before moving into the hotel lobby, where the front desk clerk was also stabbed.
Police say none of the stabbing injuries appear to be life threatening.
Horsley says a 52-year-old man believed to be a manager was arrested in a back office, and police have recommended five charges of aggravated assault.
He says investigators don't believe the suspect was provoked and they're still trying to figure out what motivated the attack.
