RCMP search for stabbing suspects

In the early hours of April 10 a victim was attacked by several men, suffering serious injuries. Police are looking for the assailants.

The Chilliwack RCMP’s Serious Crime Section is asking for public help after a man was stabbed in the 45600 block of Patten Avenue.

At 1:45 a.m. April 10 witnesses say the victim got into an altercation with two or three other men. Stabbed during the fight, emergency responders rushed him to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Aided by the Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Service, RCMP searched the area but didn’t find the suspects.

Investigators are actively investigating this incident and continue to canvas residents in the 45600 block of Patten Avenue for witnesses,” said RCMP Cpl. Mike Rail. “Police believe this was not a random act and the victim was targeted.”

The victim has since recovered enough to be released from hospital.
