Winnipeg, February 10, 2024 - The Winnipeg Police are currently investigating a series of stabbing incidents that happened in the past 24 hours. In what appears to be a string of unrelated attacks, authorities are urging the public to provide any information that may assist in apprehending the perpetrators.


The first stabbing occurred last evening around 8:40 p.m. in the vicinity of Donald Street and Portage Avenue. Police responded alongside K-9 units to find a male victim in his 40s suffering from stab wounds. The victim, initially in unstable condition, was transported to hospital where his condition later stabilized. Despite the immediate response, no arrests have been made in connection with this incident. The investigation is being spearheaded by the Major Crimes Unit.


Shortly after midnight, there was yet another stabbing, this time in the 800 block of Main Street. Police arrived on scene at approximately 1:50 a.m. this morning to discover a male victim in his 20s with multiple injuries, including serious wounds necessitating emergency medical intervention, including the application of a chest seal. The victim, initially listed as unstable, has since been upgraded to stable condition. As with the prior incident, the Major Crimes Unit has taken charge of the investigation, and no suspects have been apprehended at this time.


The wave of violence continued into the early hours of today, when officers responded to another stabbing incident, this time near Church Avenue and Main Street. At approximately 4:00 a.m., police arrived at the scene to find a victim, a male in his 30s, requiring immediate medical attention. The victim was taken to hospital and is currently listed in stable condition. Again, no arrests have been made, and the Major Crimes Unit has been notified to lead the investigation.


In light of these disturbing events, the Winnipeg Police are urging anyone with information pertinent to any of these incidents to come forward and assist in their inquiries. The Major Crimes Unit can be reached at 204-986-6219, or individuals can provide information anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS or via the organization's website at winnipegcrimestoppers.org.
