West Shore RCMP crime briefs

Stabbing at the tracks

A 20-year-old man was stabbed on the E&N train tracks near Hallowell Road in View Royal on Sunday.

West Shore RCMP say the incident occurred shortly after midnight, when two woman were fighting. The 20-year-old, who knew the women, was trying to break up the fight when he was stabbed by one of them.

Both women fled the scene. The victim and another male, who called 9-1-1, remained at the scene. When police arrived both males were too intoxicated to provide any details, but police did find a woman’s purse and shoes nearby.

Not far away, police found a shoeless woman who had allegedly stabbed the man.

“She was not far from the location,” said Sgt. Max Fossum, of West Shore RCMP.

The victim was taken to hospital and released soon after. The RCMP has recommended the 23-year-old woman be charged with assault with a weapon.

Knife pulled on Bear Mountain

What could have been a deadly incident involving a knife ended with no injuries.

After having an object thrown at the window of a home in the 1300 block of Bear Mountain Parkway, 38-year-old male resident went outside to investigate. The 31-year-old female resident called 9-1-1.

The man found a 43-year male outside the home, who was, apparently, a family friend. The two began to fight and the 43-year-old pulled a knife. The 38-year-old was able to wrestle the knife away from the other man, who was arrested by West Shore RCMP.

RCMP are not sure what prompted the altercation.
