The Regina Police Service is asking for help from the public in its investigation into an incident last night in which a Regina cab driver was stabbed by an unknown male suspect.
At approximately 9:52 p.m. on Wednesday, April 1, 2015, police were dispatched to hospital for a report of a male who had come in with what appeared to be a stab wound. Police attended and spoke with hospital staff as well as the victim, a 28 year old Regina male. Through investigation the officers learned that the victim, who drives a cab, had picked up a fare earlier that evening on Angus Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues. The passenger sat in the front seat and once they were underway, the suspect attempted to rob the victim. It’s alleged the suspect stabbed the driver once and then fled the cab, running west on Dewdney Avenue. The victim was able to drive himself to hospital for treatment, at which point police were called. No one has been arrested in connection with this incident. The suspect was described as male, Aboriginal, about 20-25 years old, with short hair. Police are continuing to investigate.
Anyone who has information, or may have witnessed the suspect’s escape, is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. The Regina Police Service thanks the public and the media for their assistance in this matter.
