Saskatoon police are asking for help in finding a suspect who reportedly stabbed a man at a city bus stop.
Officers were called around 9 p.m. Tuesday to the 1300 block of 20th Street West.
They arrived to find a 63-year-old man with cuts to his face and back.
Officers were told an unknown man approached the bus stop and began acting aggressively.
From there, the suspect reportedly began swinging a knife, cutting the 63-year-old man near his mouth, on his temple and on his shoulder before allegedly shoving him to the ground.
The suspect reportedly followed his alleged victim when he tried to get away, then ran away on foot when he was unable to steal the older man’s backpack.
The 63-year-old was taken to hospital with what were described as non-life threatening injuries.
Police said they are looking for a man, possibly in his late 20’s, five feet five inches tall with a muscular build. The suspect is reportedly clean-shaven, with short, dark hair. He was reportedly wearing a black hat, black pants and a yellow hoodie.
Anyone with information is asked to call Saskatoon police at 306-975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
