File # 2023-35317

A man is in hospital, and another is in custody, after police were called to a Valleyview motel last night for a report of a stabbing.

On Thursday Sept., 28, 2023, around 8:20 p.m. police responded to an address on the 1800-block of the East Trans Canada Highway, where they located a man in his 30s suffering from serious injuries.

Within moments of arriving at the scene, frontline officers had provided emergency first-aid to the victim, and quickly located and arrested a suspect, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP Detachment spokesperson. The victim was transported to hospital by ambulance and is in stable condition. The suspect, a man in his 20s, was taken into custody without issue, to be held for a bail hearing. Both parties were known to each other.

Numerous police officers attended the area last night in response to the report. This morning, a reduced presence remains as part of the ongoing investigation.

Anyone with information, security video, or dash camera footage that may be related to this incident, is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2023-35317.
