Second person arrested in Goose trail stabbing

Police have warrant for arrest of unnamed 21-year-old Langford woman in connection with incident

An 18-year-old man, one of three suspects in Tuesday’s stabbing of a 31-year-old man on the Galloping Goose Trail, turned himself into the Sooke RCMP detachment yesterday afternoon.

The younger man, the second person arrested in the case following the arrest early Wednesday of a 17-year-old Langford girl, remains in custody. He was scheduled to hear charges of aggravated assault and robbery today (Oct. 2)  in Western Communities Courthouse in Colwood.

At press time, RCMP were still searching for the third suspect, a 21-year-old Langford woman, and had obtained a warrant for her arrest.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information that may assist investigators in locating the 21 year old female are asked to contact the West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264, or anonymously through Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
