We continue to investigate a stabbing that took place last week.

At approximately 9:30 p.m., on Thursday, Aug. 18, 2022, police were called to the area of Memorial Drive and Second Street N.E., for reports of a man suffering from what appeared to be stab wounds.

The victim, a 30-year-old man, was found near the south curb of Memorial Drive adjacent to the Bow River Pathway, by citizens walking in the area who subsequently reported the incident to police.
