Three men have been charged with attempted murder, only one in custody

Salmon Arm RCMP are requesting the public’s help in locating two men charged in connection with a serious stabbing in Blind Bay.

Three men have been charged but only one is in custody.

The investigation began when a bleeding man showed up at the front door of a Blind Bay residence on Sunday, Aug. 16 looking for help.

When Salmon Arm RCMP and emergency medical personnel showed up at the Forest Drive home, they found a man bleeding heavily from apparent stab wounds, said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.

Police said they believe the assault was carried out at a nearby car wash, and the incident was targeted.

RCMP continue to search for 36-year-old Alexander Vittal Boucher of Enderby and 40-year-old Terrance Alan Jones of Edmonton, who are each wanted on outstanding warrants issued for their arrest.
