Saskatoon police were called to Royal University Hospital on Jan. 10, 2017, when a 20-year-old man arrived with stab wounds to the head and hand.

A scary night for a man who was stabbed after allegedly being robbed by three men in an alley Tuesday night.

Saskatoon police were called shortly after 8 p.m. to Royal University Hospital.

A 20-year-old man had arrived at RUH with non-life-threatening stab wounds to the head and hand.

The man told police he was walking in an alley in the 1400 block of 20th Street West when three men approached him.

The suspects allegedly demanded his belongings and stabbed him with what’s believed to be a switchblade knife.

The first suspect is described as a white man in his early 20s, around 125 pounds, wearing a black winter coat and Adidas sweatpants.  

The other two suspects are described as tall and thin. They were both wearing neck warmers over their faces, had their hoods up with black winter coats and jeans. They were also carrying a black Adidas bag.  

The men fled the scene with the victim's RVCA brand jacket.  

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Saskatoon Police Service at 306-975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
