The death of a 24-year-old man in downtown Calgary this past weekend has now been ruled a homicide, police said on Tueaday.
The investigation began just after 2 am on Sunday morning, when the victim, identified later Craig Cutter, was found in “medical distress,” in the 200 block of 15 Avenue SE.
The man was taken to the hospital, but ultimately succumbed to his injuries, which police said were the result of a stabbing.
Investigators with the Calgary Police’s Homicide Unit, said Cutter was found injured after what they believe was an altercation took place in the area that involved “approximately 10 people.”
Police are unaware, they said, if the victim was involved in the initial altercation.
The motive for the assault, as well as the disturbance itself, is not yet known, they added.
“We continue to review CCTV and speak with witnesses.”
Now, anyone with information about this incident is being asked to call the Calgary Police Service non-emergency number at 403-266-1234, or to leave an anonymous tip, contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 or leave a tip online.
