Yellowknife RCMP seek answers after man seriously injured downtown

Yellowknife RCMP are imploring residents who may witnessed "suspicious activity" in the downtown area last week to come forward after they say a man sustained "serious injuries" during an unknown "incident."

Police say a male was treated at Stanton Territorial Hospital before being transported to a hospital in Edmonton, according to a news release issued Tuesday afternoon.

Police have not specified how or to what extent the man was injured.

Mounties are now trying to determine how the incident occurred.

Anyone who may have witnessed suspicious activity on Friday, March 22, "between 1:30 am and 1:45 am ... in the area of 50th Avenue and 50th Street," is asked to contact RCMP.

“RCMP would like to determine how the male was injured and encourage anyone who saw suspicious activity in the area to call the police,” states Marie York-Condon, RCMP spokesperson.
