Police name Alberni stabbing victim

Port Alberni RCMP say that Aaron Anthony Thompson, 21, is the man who died after being stabbed on Monday.

Port Alberni RCMP have named the man who died after being stabbed on Monday.

The victim is Aaron Anthony Thompson, 21, of Port Alberni, RCMP Cpl. Jen Allan said. He is not known to police, she added.

Police found Thompson suffering from stab wounds in the 4800 block of Redford St. after 8 am. on Monday. Thompson was transported to West Coast General Hospital where he died of his wounds.

The incident originally happened at a residence on the same block, Allan said.

On Monday afternoon, a police dog unit flushed a suspect out from Dry Creek Park, located only blocks away from where Thompson was found. The man was apprehended by police on Frank Street after a foot chase through the park.

The suspect is a 25-year-old male who is known to police, Allan said.

Police are continuing their investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Port Alberni RCMP detachment at 250-723-2424, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-247-TIPS.

“There may be someone in the community who has the one piece of information that investigators require to put the entire picture together, and we are urging them to call us,” Allan said.
