The hunt is on for a suspect after a stabbing near a gas station in Kamloops this morning.

RCMP say a man was stabbed near the Husky on Columbia Street West at around 11:45 a.m. today, March 24, suffering non-life threatening injuries.

Two men helped the victim across Columbia Street to the Star Lodge and from there he was taken by ambulance to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to an RCMP media release.

The suspect fled from the gas station across McGill Road and ran toward the nearby Wendy's restaurant, police say.

The suspect was wearing a black hoodie that had a large design on the front with grey sleeves, grey sweatpants and white runners with a black stripe.

Investigators hope to have images from surveillance video in the area tomorrow.

RCMP would like to speak with the two men who assisted the victim from the gas station to the Star Lodge.
