Two males suffer serious injuries in double stabbing in Sooke: RCMP

Two males were sent to hospital and another was arrested following a double stabbing in Sooke that resulted in serious injuries, according to RCMP.

Mounties say they were called to the 6600-block of Sooke Road around 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, for a report of a stabbing. They say witnesses initiated first aid on the victims until paramedics arrived on scene.

In a news release Sunday RCMP say the victims, both males who suffered serious injuries, were then transported to hospital by BC Emergency Heath Services.

“The investigation indicated that an altercation erupted between a group of people, which eventually led to the victims being stabbed. The events leading up to the altercation are also carefully being investigated,” said RCMP in the release.

Police say the suspect, a 21-year-old man, was located nearby and arrested. They say the incident appears to be isolated with no risk to the public.

One person on Facebook says the incident happened at a bus stop on Sooke Road, while another person tells CHEK News that “people feel unsafe using these public areas because they have been threatened.”

“We have drug users using in open view of our children. People can’t use their local trails, including Ed MacGregor Park, for fear of running into these issues,” they said.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Sooke RCMP at 250-642-5241.

CHEK News has reached out to RCMP for more information.
