Calgary police sifting through stabbing spree tips

<p>Officers are busy sifting through hundreds of tips from the public in the wake of last week’s citywide stabbing rampage that left one woman dead and four others injured.</p>




“We’ve been inundated with tips from the public ... Right now we just have to find out which information is of higher priority.”






Officers are busy sifting through hundreds of tips from the public in the wake of last week’s citywide stabbing rampage that left one woman dead and four others injured.





And cops are hoping one last victim who remains in hospital will be able to help police in their hunt for the three to four black males they say are responsible for the savage attacks.





Acting Staff Sgt. Patty McCallum of the major crimes unit said police hope to interview the woman who suffered slash and stab wounds.





“One person was still being treated, which is obviously not the best time to do a follow-up. But besides interviewing them we’ll be doing a followup with all of the victims,” McCallum told Metro.





She added the focus of the investigation now is following up on the hundreds of tips that have been pouring in.





“We’ve been inundated with tips from the public through Crime Stoppers, the major crimes unit and the community, and right now we just have to find out which information is of higher priority,” she said.





The suspects are described as three to four black males between 20 and 30 years old who were seen in a light beige or silver newer sedan at the time of the attacks.





Forty-four-year old Jacqueline Clara Crazybull died from stab wounds after being knifed while sitting on a bench in the Beltline.





Anyone with information is asked to call 266-1234 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
