Ottawa: Heartbreaking news is coming from Canada. In the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, 10 people have been killed and 15 others are said to be injured in knife attacks at different places. The attacker is absconding. The Royal Canadian Mountain Police (RCMP) has issued an alert for dangerous persons.
The RCMP has issued an alert for suspects across the state following the shocking incident that took place at different places in the James Smith Cree Nation and Wealdon in Saskatchewan province. Police say there have been several stabbings in the James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon Village, northeast of Saskatchewan.
The alleged attackers fled in a vehicle and have been identified as Myles and Damien Sanderson, aged 30 and 31 respectively, both with black hair and brown eyes.
The suspects have been identified as Damien Sanderson and Miles Sanderson, according to the RCMP. An alert has been issued in the entire state to search for them. It is not yet known what was the motive of the suspects. RCMP Saskatchewan assistant commissioner Rhonda Blackmore said some victims were targeted by suspects, but others were attacked with impunity. Therefore, the motive behind this is not yet known. Blackmore said that what happened was appalling.
Blackmore also said that the number of injured could rise. “We are carrying out an extensive search operation with all our means to nab the attackers,” he said. The RCMP says they have learned that the two suspects may have been traveling along Arcola Avenue in Regina. Regina police say that both the suspects have been seen at around 11.20 am.
Police say that since the suspect is absconding, we have also issued an alert in the province of Manitoba and Alberta. Police say the suspects were probably in a Nissan Rogue car with a Saskatchewan number plate. He says the suspects may still have access to the vehicle. Therefore, an alert has been issued in other states as well.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the attacks “horrific and heartbreaking” in a tweet, offering condolences and urging residents to heed authorities’ instructions.
The attacks in Saskatchewan today are horrific and heartbreaking. I’m thinking of those who have lost a loved one and of those who were injured.
