CALGARY – A man swarmed by several others and stabbed in the chest has died, launching another homicide investigation by city police.
Officers were called out to what was initially a serious assault in the 100 block of Manora Place N.E. around 10:30 last night. There, they found a man bleeding from a chest wound.
Paramedics took the man to hospital where he later died from his injuries.
“Five to six (Middle Eastern) males came up to a condo complex and stabbed the victim once in the chest,” said duty inspector Frank Farkas.
Although police located witnesses, they had no suspects in custody. It’s believed the culprits sped from the scene in a grey truck.
Police taped off a large section of the townhouse complex and street in Marlborough Park to preserve any evidence. An autopsy is expected later today.
