After arresting and charging four men in a series of stabbings in October in downtown Edmonton, police say there was an additional victim they’re looking to speak with.

The stabbings began on Sunday, Oct. 2 at around 3:30 a.m., when a 57-year-old man near 99 Avenue and 104 Street was confronted by two other men.

The two suspects reportedly pushed the victim to the ground and stabbed him repeatedly, while another two men stood by watching.

The four fled the scene north on 104 Street from 99 Avenue, police said.

The injured man was able to yell for help and bystanders provided first-aid until EMS arrived. Police said paramedics took him to hospital with serious injuries.
