Police find no evidence of ‘stabbing’ after reports trigger emergency alert at U of C

Calgary police said they found no victims, witnesses or offenders following multiple reports of stabbings that led officers to attend the University of Calgary on Tuesday night.

Police said shortly before 8:30 p.m. they were called to the University of Calgary campus at 2500 University Drive NW to multiple reports of an unknown male stabbing multiple people.

Upon arrival, officers searched the campus but were unable to locate any victims or witnesses to corroborate the incident, or any evidence that an offender was involved.

At around 9 p.m. Tuesday, the university issued an emergency alert, warning people that an « attacker » was on campus.

The alert was lifted just after 9:30 p.m. after police confirmed the suspect was no longer on campus.

Police said more information about the situation later became available and that the District 3 General Investigations Unit is working with the University of Calgary as the investigation continues.
