Calgary police are investigating after two people were stabbed outside a northwest Calgary restaurant Saturday afternoon.
Officers were called to the 1700 block of 2nd Street N.W. at 2:35 p.m. Saturday, where a person had been stabbed multiple times, police said.
EMS said crews responded to an adult male with traumatic injuries thought to have been inflicted during a fight in the parking lot outside of a restaurant. That person was transported to Foothills Medical Centre in serious, life-threatening condition, police said. The man’s condition was later upgraded to stable.
A second stabbing victim later arrived at hospital in non-life-threatening condition.
Police said they believe the stabbings took place in the parking lot of the Van Son Vietnamese Cuisine restaurant, located at 308 16th Ave. N.W.
“Several” arrests were made at the scene, with the Calgary Police Service general investigation team interviewing suspects. No charges have been laid and it is not yet clear what role those arrested played in the incident.
Police are searching for an additional suspect believed to be involved with the stabbing. He is described as a bearded man in his 20s of Middle Eastern ethnicity, between five feet eight inches and five feet 10 inches tall.
Those with information on the stabbings can contact the police non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or provide information anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
