Suspect remains at large in Songhees stabbing

Police looking for 23-year-old woman after possible domestic altercation

West Shore RCMP are on the lookout for a 23-year-old woman who may have been involved in a stabbing incident that took place Thursday in a home on Songhees First Nation land.

Officers responded to call on Ned Williams Road at around 9:30 p.m., with initial reports indicating a man had been stabbed in the abdomen by a family member. The stabbing victim was taken to hospital where he was treated for lacerations sustained from an edged weapon. His condition was deemed to be non-life threatening.

The preliminary investigation also indicated that a prior physical altercation occurred between the victim and suspect, but few other details were being released by police.

Officers canvassed the neighbourhood for information and searched the area with the help of Victoria Police’s K-9 unit, but could not find the suspect. At the time of writing the woman was still at large, but police believe there is no indication she poses a risk to the public.

West Shore RCMP’s general investigation section is assisting with this incident and a search warrant was executed at the residence. Anyone with information is asked to contact the local detachment or through CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
