Police Appeal to Public For Information in Moncton Stabbing
RCMP are asking for the public's help to identify the person or persons involved in a stabbing on Main Street in Moncton last month that sent one man to hospital.
A 27-year-old man suffered a stab wound to the back while waiting for a taxi on April 20 at approximately 2:00 a.m., according to Corporal Michel Dupuis of the Codiac Regional RCMP.
Police say that prior to the stabbing, the victim had been at Navigators Pub on Robinson Street when a woman allegedly approached him and began assaulting him. When the victim tried to push the woman away, five men who were watching nearby began assaulting the man. The bartender then asked everyone involved in the altercation to leave the pub.
The victim left the pub and walked to Main Street to get a taxi home, RCMP said. While on Main Street, near the train bridge overpass, someone reportedly approached the man from behind, stabbed him in the back and fled. The victim did not see who stabbed him.
Police believe the two incidents are connected and are asking for the public's help to identify the individuals involved.
