One man is in custody after allegedly stabbing three individuals multiple times inside a residence in North Saanich on Friday.
Sidney North Saanich RCMP officers received a 911 call on Friday night that multiple people had received serious injuries by someone still inside a residence with them in the 10000 Block of Derrick Road.
Police immediately attended and had to use force to enter the residence.
Three individuals were found inside the home who had been stabbed multiple times. RCMP stated that they located the man believed to be responsible on scene and arrested him without incident.
While the victims had received injuries that necessitated emergency transport to hospital, emergency first aid measures were conducted first by the officers until the scene was deemed safe for BC Ambulance Paramedics.
The victims were transported and are currently in serious but stable condition and are expected to survive the injuries, police said.
“Responding officers relied on their training and de-escalation skills to take this very agitated and violent individual into custody. I am grateful that all first responders acted in a professional manner to bring this very volatile situation to a safe end,” Cpl Andres Sanchez Media Liaison with Sidney North Saanich RCMP said in a news release.
RCMP said that there is no danger to the public and at this stage of the investigation, it is believed that the man arrested is known to the victims and that this was an isolated incident.
The man arrested remains in police custody pending further court proceedings.
As this remains an active investigation, no further details will be released at this time by police.
