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.

If you have any information about this crime, or know the two women, please call VicPD on the non-emergency line at 250-995-7654. Information on this, or any crime, can also be reported anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
