Police seek aid to find man after stabbing in Duncan

Police believe a 25-year-old Crofton man was stabbed but what they’re still unsure of is just who was on the other end of the weapon.

The incident occurred Saturday, June 28 at the Tim Hortons parking lot on Drinkwater Road. "Two men, one of which is the victim, became involved in fisticuffs after a road rage incident just before three in the afternoon," North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP Cpl. Krista Hobday said. "The victim sustained very serious injuries and has since been released from hospital."

With the assailant still at large, officers have released a photograph of a person of interest in the aggravated assault case.

"Police are very motivated to identify the pictured man who may be able to shed light on the stabbing and move the investigation forward," Hobday said.

The picture shows a slender man of about five-foot-nine with short dark hair and a medium complexion.

He is believed to be in his late 20s to early 30s.
