File # 2020-7862

On August 10, just prior to 2p.m., a 24 year old Parksville man attended the Oceanside RCMP Detachment asking for police help and medical attention. The man was suffering from a stab wound to the shoulder. The victim gave Oceanside RCMP officers an account of what happened before being transported to hospital by BC Ambulance personnel.

At 2:45 p.m., the Oceanside RCMP found the suspect, 28 year old Parksville man, Hudson David Klassen. Klassen was still at the location where the stabbing occurred, a wooded area where people of no fixed address are camping near Wembley Mall.

Hudson Klassen, who is well known to police was arrested without incident and was held overnight. On August 11, Klassen made his first appearance in Nanaimo Provincial Court and has been remanded until his next appearance in a week. Klassen is facing charges regarding the stabbing and for being in possession of a knife which was contrary to conditions previously given to him by the courts.
