Kamloops RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect involved in a stabbing in downtown Kamloops.
They reported today (May 4, 2018) that on April 28 at about 1 a.m., a man and several friends were waiting for a cab at Victoria Street and Third Avenue after leaving a local night club.
When their cab showed up, another man, also accompanied by a small group of people, attempted to take the cab. An argument ensued between the victim, who had originally called for the taxi, and the suspect.

The suspect is described as: Caucasian, 6 feet tall with a slim build and short hair. He was wearing a ball cap, jeans and a sweater.
