A Friday night beef between two parties in front of the Keg restaurant ended in one male stabbing a pair of male diners exiting the restaurant on the 3900 block of Quadra Street.

The suspect fled but was soon apprehended by Saanich Police’s K9 unit.

An initial police report stated there was an altercation between two males and another male, during which a weapon was produced. The patrons were injured, but the injuries were not life-threatening and relatively minor in nature.

“The incident may not be quite as shocking as first reported. Investigators are trying to work through and figure out if [the Crown] will press charges,” said Saanich Police Sgt. Steve Eassie.

As of Monday morning, information regarding the altercation wasn’t entirely clear, Eassie added.

The suspect was initially taken into custody but was released later over the weekend.
