On February 5, 2018, just before 2:30PM, the Saskatoon Police Service responded to a residence in the 3600 block of Diefenbaker Drive to a report of a male being stabbed.
Once on scene, police were able to determine that the incident was in fact a home invasion where two suspects entered the residence, each armed with a canister of bear spray and one had a knife, demanding prescription drugs. During the encounter, the occupants of the home fought back and one of the suspects stabbed a 17 year old male occupant of the home in the leg and rib cage area. Another occupant struck one of the suspects with a hammer. The suspects then deployed bear spray at the occupants and fled, stealing only a wallet from the home.
An SPS K9 officer and the Air Support Unit attempted to track the suspects however they were not located. The suspects are described as being indigenous, approximately 5’10” to 5’11” tall with dark hair and possibly wearing gloves. They both had their faces covered with bandanas, one red and one black and they were both wearing grey hoodies.
The victim of the stabbing was transported by ambulance to Royal University Hospital after suffering from non-life threatening injuries.
This is an ongoing investigation. If you have information on this incident, please contact the Saskatoon Police Service or Crime Stoppers.
