Man seriously injured in Chinook mall stabbing: police


A man was sent to hospital after a stabbing at Chinook Centre mall on Thursday morning.

Calgary police were called to the north side of the mall around 11:40 a.m. for the incident that took place near an entrance where the Nordstrom store used to be.

According to EMS, the man was transported to hospital in serious but otherwise stable condition.

"What happened in front of me seemed like it was all very much a random act," said a witness who did not want to be identified.

She said she saw a man approach another man to try and grab his bag while he sat on a couch.

"That was basically it. It was a very quick, quick thing that happened and, again, they fought for a bit, they fell on the ground and then he got stabbed."

The suspect fled but was arrested at the Chinook LRT Station. Top Stories
