Stabbing in Parksville

Oceanside

File # 2021-2186

On March 7 at approximately 1:30 a.m., the Oceanside RCMP received a call from the BC Ambulance Service (BCAS) who advised they were attending to a 39 year old man who had been stabbed. The person who called BCAS to report the injuries was a 38 year old woman and friend of the victim.

Upon attendance to the stabbing which reportedly happened outdoors in the 900 block of Fairdowne Road, Parksville, there were more questions than answers. The original caller had fled the area as she had outstanding arrest warrants and the victim was not forthcoming with the police.

RCMP officers learned that the victim allegedly had a physical altercation with two unknown males and was then stabbed multiple times in the lower back.

The Oceanside RCMP followed up with the victim in hospital where he is recovering from the stabbing but he was still not cooperative with the investigators. Police do not believe this was a random incident. The exact location (crime scene) was not established due to the lack of detail from the victim and the original caller.

The Oceanside RCMP wish to speak to the original complainant or anyone who may have witnessed, or has information regarding this stabbing.
