Campbell River father stabbed a second time, shortly after release from hospital
A 21-year-old Campbell River father who was stabbed twice in the chest on July 14 was stabbed again on Friday, five days after he was released from Victoria hospital following open-heart surgery.
Colin Dube-Wheat’s cousin Jen Fyfe told the Times Colonist that Dube-Wheat was the victim of a murder attempt in a 900-block Cedar Street residence in Campbell River at around 7 p.m. Friday.
Police said Dube-Wheat was taken to Campbell River Hospital and is expected to survive.
Two police officers were hurt while trying to take a suspect into custody.
Police have said that drug use may have played a role in the stabbing, but have so far declined to elaborate.
