A male youth is in hospital in stable condition after being stabbed several times in the torso yesterday morning.

Police haven’t yet released details of the altercation, but said it wasn’t a random attack.

The suspect, also a male youth, fled the scene but has since turned himself in to Saanich police. He’ll remain in custody until a court hearing this afternoon police say.
