Man stabbed by stranger

A Quesnel man was rushed to hospital with serious injuries Wednesday after being stabbed by an unknown assailant.

RCMP Cpl. Madonna Saunderson says just after 5:30 p.m., police were called to assist paramedics after they were notified of a person in need of urgent medical attention.

“It was reported that an adult man had been walking along the 400 Block of Reid Street when he was confronted by an unknown man and stabbed,” Saunderson says.

The victim was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

“This could have ended much differently, and we ask that anyone who may have been in the area during this time, to contact the police,” said Sgt. Richard Weseen.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Quesnel RCMP at 250-992-9211.
