One man was taken to hospital with serious injuries following a stabbing in Centennial Square early on Saturday morning and Victoria police are seeking witnesses.

Officers patrolling in downtown Victoria came across an injured man walking in the 1500-block of Douglas Street – the area near Centennial Square – around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday (Aug. 22).

The man, who police say had sustained “potentially life-threatening injuries,” told officers he’d been stabbed. The officers tended to him until paramedics arrived. Later that morning, VicPD confirmed that the man’s condition had improved and his injuries were considered non-life-threatening.
