UPDATE: Port Alberni man stabbed in the neck and side

A Port Alberni resident found a 38-year-old man covered in blood and appearing to be in shock on April 21.

A Port Alberni resident found a 38-year-old man covered in blood and appearing very disoriented on April 21 after the man was stabbed in the neck and side.

Larry Tom was informed by his girlfriend of a man outside of his house who was bleeding very badly. Tom went outside, jumped in his car and met the victim by a stop sign on the corner of Third Avenue and Neill Street.

“I had really nothing to really try to stop the [bleeding] so I ripped my shirt off and tied it around his neck,” Tom said. “The other thing was I didn’t know he got stabbed twice which was the reason why he had so much blood on his shirt.”

Tom said while he was attempting to get the victim in his vehicle to bring him to the hospital, a larger van pulled up and took the injured man to West Coast General Hospital.

“I did go there[WCGH] to stay with him to make sure he was going to be okay,” Tom said.

Tom said he thinks who ever else was involved fled the scene quickly but did not see anyone.

The victim was later transported to Victoria General Hospital where he remains in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries.

At 4:46 p.m. on Thursday, April 21, Port Alberni RCMP responded to a call of a man having been stabbed. The stabbing occurred inside a residence on the 4900 block of Neill Street.

The incident was not a random act of violence, said Port Alberni RCMP Cpl. Amelia Hayden, and that all parties are known to police and each other.
