The Perth-Andover RCMP is seeking the public’s help following a stabbing incident in Rowena, N.B.
On October 4, 2022, at approximately 9:45 a.m., members of the Perth-Andover RCMP detachment responded to a report of an assault with a weapon on Route 390 in Rowena, near Perth-Andover and Tobique.
A 38-year-old man reported that, while driving on Route 390, he was flagged down by two individuals on the side of the road. The individuals had their vehicle pulled over, with the hazard lights flashing and the hood open, appearing to need help.
When the man stopped to assist, the two assaulted him and the man was stabbed. The individuals stole his wallet, and fled the scene. The man was able to call police and was later transported to hospital with what are believed to be serious, but non-life threatening injuries.
The first individual involved in the incident is described as a man, possibly in his fifties, with a medium build. He had a grey beard and spoke English with no apparent accent.
The second individual involved is described as a woman, possibly in her late teens to mid twenties, who was short in stature with a slim build. She had black hair with purple highlights.
The two individuals were travelling in an older model four-door Honda Civic, light grey in colour, with no licence plate. The vehicle was also described as in visibly poor condition, with visible rust spots.
Police are asking anyone with information about the incident, who was travelling on Route 390 on October 4 at approximately 9:45 a.m., or who lives in the area and may have surveillance footage from the time of the incident, to contact the Perth-Andover RCMP at 506-273-5000.
