Victoria man stabbed inside Esquimalt apartment building

Victoria police respond to incident around 2:30 a.m. on Grenville Street

  • Nov. 29, 2013 5:00 p.m.

A 39-year-old Victoria man is in hospital after he was stabbed inside an Esquimalt apartment unit this morning (Nov. 29).

Victoria police arrived in the 600-block of Grenville St. around 2:30 a.m. and found the man suffering from a stab wound amongst several people.

The witnesses claimed the man had arrived with his injuries, but evidence at the scene suggests the stabbing occurred inside the unit, said VicPD Const. Mike Russell.

This is the third violent incident involving a knife in the past week in Victoria and Esquimalt. On Nov. 26, a 20-year-old Victoria man escaped with superficial injuries after an attempted robbery with a knife in Rock Bay; and on Nov. 23, a 26-year-old man suffered serious injuries when he was stabbed multiple times near the intersection of Johnson and Douglas streets.

Police haven’t drawn any links in the cases, Russell said.
