Prince George RCMP investigating Victoria Street stabbing

Police investigate stabbing

Prince George RCMP are investigating a stabbing that occurred in the VLA area yesterday morning (Jan. 23).

Shortly after 8 a.m. police attended a residence on the 1100 block-Victoria Street for a report of a stabbing at that location. Frontline members quickly attended the basement unit of the residence and located a male suffering from multiple stab wounds.

Emergency services transported the man to the University Hospital of Northern B.C. (UHNBC) where he remains in critical condition. Police say investigators believe this was a targeted event and that the victim and suspect know one another.

RCMP spokesperson Cst. Jennifer Cooper says multiple witnesses have already provided their statements to police and are being cooperative and the safety of the public is not at risk. She says the investigation is still in the early stages and police may provide further updates as the investigation continues.
