Police are looking to speak with a couple who they say assisted a stabbing victim in Cole Harbour earlier this month.

Halifax RCMP say a 20-year-old man and his female friend were talking near Sir Robert Borden Junior High School on Aug. 13 when they were approached by three people. An altercation ended with the man being stabbed.

Police say before being transported to hospital, a couple approached the victim and assisted him briefly with first aid. They left in a dark-coloured truck before police arrived.

The couple, according to police, may have information that could assist in the investigation.
