Significant RCMP resources were allocated to investigate this stabbing. The Campbell River Major Crime Unit along with other plainclothes units such as our Street Crime Unit poured all their efforts into locating the suspect and accomplished a monumental task in a very short time, in order to preserve public safety. With Police Dog Services present during the arrest, Soroczynski was taken into custody without incident, demonstrating the ability of a dog and it’s handler in preventing a potentially volatile situation from escalating.

RCMP spokesperson Cst. Maury Tyre said, We hope that people in the community can feel a little more at ease now that Soroczynski is in custody. We also would like to wish the victim in this matter all the best in her recovery from the injuries sustained, both physical and mental.
