The Victoria Police Department are searching for witnesses to a late-night stabbing in downtown Victoria last week.

On Sunday, July 26, officers were called to the 1100-block of Wharf Street just after midnight for reports of a man who had been stabbed. Staff at Darcy’s Pub were alerted and began first aid.

When officers arrived, they found a 32-year-old Saanich man who had been stabbed on his side.

The man was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Detectives learned the victim spoke to two women on the corner of Wharf and Fort streets after the alleged stabbing.

The pair were described as South-Asian women in their 20s. Both were wearing dresses.

Detectives hope to speak to the women in hopes they might shed light on what happened.
