WINNIPEG – Police are searching for two teens after a man was stabbed multiple times while riding a bus near Osborne Village.
Around 6:00 PM on Sunday, police say a group of teens got into an argument with another passenger while travelling on a transit bus near Stradbrook and Harkness.
The victim, a 27-year-old man, was stabbed with a knife multiple times.
Police described the stabbing as an unprovoked attack.
“There was a struggle and a number of cuts and lacerations that the victim sustained,” says Constable Jason Michalyshen. “We can’t specify what exactly provoked this, but we are motivated to find out what that is. If we have individuals like this, armed with weapons not afraid of confronting people in this fashion, it is concerning.”
Before fleeing, bear mace was also sprayed in the victim’s direction.
The victim was treated in hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
The suspects are believed to be between 14 and 16 years old and were both wearing skinny jeans and red baseball caps.
