Police still searching for a suspect

One man was left with stab wounds to his upper body after a fight near Langford Lanes.

The incident took place in the early morning hours of March 17. Two men were involved in a verbal argument that led to a physical confrontation. One man was transported to hospital in stable but serious condition.

The suspect fled the area before police arrived on scene.

Police dogs were called to aid in the search but were unsuccessful in locating the suspect.

“The West Shore RCMP Major Crime Unit is spearheading this investigation with the assistance of Island District RCMP Forensic Services. We continue to follow up on leads and interview potential witnesses,” said Const. Matt Baker. “Although we have identified a suspect and are actively looking for him, the investigation is ongoing and are looking for the public’s assistance with any information they have.”

Police have not release the identify of the suspect and the local detachment reiterated there is no threat to the general public.
