Calgary police investigate daylight downtown stabbing
Calgary police are searching for a suspect after an attack in broad daylight Monday afternoon on Stephen Avenue Mall.
When police arrived at the scene near 1 St. S.W. shortly after 3 p.m., they found a man with stab wounds to his abdomen.
The 32-year-old man was rushed to hospital in life-threatening condition; police believe his condition was later upgraded to stable, although that has not been confirmed by EMS.
Officers scoured the area looking for the man’s assailant. They discovered a knife believed to be the weapon used in the attack in a nearby garbage can.
The man they are looking for is described as black, around 35 years old and 5’6″ in height with a slim build.
Police don’t believe the attack was random and say it may be drug-related.
