File # 2021-3817

On Tuesday, May 4, 2021, at 4:05 pm, The Terrace RCMP responded to a report of a stabbing.

An adult man was walking alone in a residential area when he observed a woman in the area. She appeared to be following him, and it seemed she may be lost or need assistance.

The woman ran up behind the man, stabbed him, then ran off. The man and woman are not known to each other and the attack was unprovoked. The man attended a local area hospital to receive treatment to the injury and is recovering.

In this particular incident, the man was aware of his surroundings and knew where the attacker was. He listened closely, heard her approach, and was able to provide a detailed description of the suspect which led to a timely arrest. The suspect is being held in custody at this time and results of the investigation will be forwarded to BC Prosecution Services for consideration of appropriate charges. Without this man’s situational awareness, the outcome may have been very different.

Terrace RCMP are reminding the public to be aware of their surroundings and want to remind the public of some personal safety tips while out and about:

If you see someone in your community who seems suspicious or out of place, don’t hesitate to phone police. If you have information about this crime contact the Terrace RCMP at (250)638-7400 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by telephone at 1-800-222-TIPS, online at www.terracecrimestoppers.ca
