A man is in stable condition after being stabbed in Williams Lake Sunday, the RCMP said Monday.

Police responded to a complaint of a disturbance in the 900 block of Western Avenue at 6:34 p.m. on May 31, North District RCMP noted in a press release.

“Initially, it is believed that two women were fighting out front of a residence,” the RCMP said. “During the fight, a group of people came out of a nearby residence and attacked one of the men who was with one of the women involved in the fight.”

It is believed that one of the attackers punched the victim in the face, stabbed him twice, and then fled the scene.

The victim was taken to hospital.

“This is believed to be an isolated incident as the parties involved are well known to police,” the RCMP said.

The police are attempting to identify the person responsible and are asking anyone with knowledge of the incident to contact the Williams Lake RCMP at 250-392-8707.
