A 37-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder after allegedly stabbing a woman in her 40s multiple times.
According to the Campbell River RCMP, officers arrested Damien Soroczynski without incident on Friday in relation to a stabbing that took place at the Real Canadian Superstore parking lot a few days earlier.
“We hope that people in the community can feel a little more at ease now that Soroczynski is in custody,” Campbell River RCMP media spokesperson, Const. Maury Tyre said, in a press release issued Saturday.
RCMP say at around 9 p.m. on June 2, Soroczynski approached the victim in the parking lot of the grocery store — and without being provoked — pulled out a knife and stabbed her several times.
The woman was taken to hospital to receive medical care and has since been released.
“We also would like to wish the victim in this matter all the best in her recovery from the injuries sustained, both physical and mental,” Tyre added.
RCMP says Soroczynski, who has a Criminal Record out of Ontario and is relatively new to the Campbell River area, has been charged with attempted murder as well as aggravated assault.
Soroczynski is expected to appear in provincial court on June 8.
