A St. Albert man and woman who were stabbed during a home invasion last week have been released from hospital.

St. Albert RCMP say the couple has been connected with victim services to provide them with the support they need to get through the ordeal.

The couple suffered serious, but non-life-threatening injuries, last Wednesday morning when they were stabbed by a man in their Woodlands-area home.

The couple told police they woke up to see a large man in their home. The man – described only as “large in stature” – ran away after the attack. RCMP believe he may have left in a vehicle.

Police are investigating but say the couple does not know the man who attacked them.

RCMP say many officers have been dedicated to the case.

“This investigation will not be concluded quickly. The reason for this crime is not known at this time,” RCMP said in a media release Wednesday.

Anyone who was in the Woodlands area around 4 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 20 is asked to report anything or anyone they saw.

Residents are also asked to check their surveillance systems to see if anyone or any vehicles were recorded in the area at the time of the attack.
