At approximately 11:00 PM on March 9th, 2012, members of the Prince George RCMP responded to the University Hospital of Northern BC for a report of two persons being stabbed.

Just before the report was made to police, two men were dropped off at the hospital with injuries consistent with being stabbed.  The first male, a 23 year old resident of Vanderhoof, BC, suffered a laceration to his head.  The second man, a 28 year old resident of Fort St. James, BC, suffered a puncture to his left abdomen.  Both men are expected to recover.

“One (victim) is still in hospital … we expect he will recover,” Corporal Craig Douglass of the Prince George RCMP said.

Investigators believe the assaults occurred in a residence on the 2200 block of Spruce Street in Prince George.

Investigators believe this to be a targeted attack and that alcohol was a factor.  This investigation is continuing the RCMP noted, but no suspects have been taken into custody.

“We will be doing more interviews, but it is difficult to speak to the victim who is in hospital,” Cpl Douglass said.

The police are asking for information from the public on this incident.
