Two people were hospitalized after incident on Northumberland Avenue on Dec. 18

Police in Nanaimo hope the public can help find several items of clothing that may have been discarded follow a stabbing that sent two people to hospital this past weekend.

The stabbing happened at about 7:15 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 18, in the 900 block of Northumberland Avenue.

The items investigators are looking for are a men’s black three-quarter-length jacket, bright orange and black or red and black gloves and a black duffel bag.

According to a Nanaimo RCMP press release, evidence gathered by investigators suggests some of the items could have been discarded in the 900 block of Northumberland Avenue, the 1500 block of Boundary Crescent, Townsite Road or any green space along the Millstone River.

“Investigators searched the immediate area where the stabbing took place, which included dumpsters, ravines and any location where discarded clothing could go undetected. To date, they have had no success,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, in the release.

Anyone who has information about these items is asked to call the Nanaimo RCMP general investigation section at 250-754-2345, and quote file No. 2021-46614.
