POLICE – Man stabbed multiple times at home in Sahali, suspect in custody

A suspect is in custody after a man was stabbed Thursday night (July 26, 2918).

In a separate incident, a fast-food restaurant was robbed at gunpoint early today (July 27, 2018).

At 7:55 p.m. Thursday, Kamloops RCMP responded to a 911 call that a man had been stabbed at a home in Sahali. The victim, who had been stabbed multiple times, was found outside of the home.

A suspect was arrested as he was attempting to leave the residence, police said.

“It appears that the two men know each other and, earlier in the evening, had allegedly got into a physical altercation, leading to the victim getting stabbed.”

The victim was taken to hospital by ambulance with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The 25-year-old suspect is from Kamloops.

Kamloops RCMP Serious Crime Unit is continuing the investigation.  The suspect will be held in custody to go before a judge.

In the other incident, police and police-dog services responded to a report of robbery with a firearm at a fast food restaurant in the 1800 block of the East Trans Canada frontage road about 1:16 a.m. today.

The restaurant was robbed of cash by someone dressed in black and wearing a white balaclava. The investigation continues.
