RCMP Seeking Victim of York Rd Knife Attack

The North Cowichan-Duncan RCMP is searching for the victim of a violent confrontation in the 5800 block of York Road at about 10 am on Wednesday morning.

Witnesses called 9-1-1 to say a man with a large knife was assaulting another man.

RCMP Media Relations officer Chris Manseau says several witnesses provided accurate descriptions of the man, a photo of the incident, and the direction of travel the suspect used to leave the area.

The police were able to identify and arrest the suspect without incident a short time later.

However, officers spent hours searching the area and making inquiries about the possible victim.
