Treasure Island stabbing scene

A 31-year-old man was in hospital Tuesday receiving medical treatment to a number of stab wounds to his head after he was assaulted at the Treasure Island complex on West Bay Road.

The 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call from the man, who lives in the area, at around 5.25pm. He told operators he had been attacked and required medical attention. Police and medics responded to the scene and found that the victim had been assaulted on the ground floor of the building. The victim was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The victim has told officers that he defended himself against the attacker and the offender ran around the front of the building. It is thought that the suspect may have fled the scene in a blue vehicle. The circumstances around the motive for the assault are being investigated.

Detectives would like to hear from anyone who witnessed what happened or has information about the assault.

Anyone who can help should contact Detective Constable Dave Morrison on 949-4222 or Crime Stoppers on 800 8477. All persons calling Crime Stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
