Vancouver Police are looking for one of two men allegedly responsible for stabbing a 50-year-old man in a random attack.
Const. Brian Montague said the attack happened in broad daylight, at around 1 p.m. March 19 in the 2300 block of Eton St.
The victim was attacked by two strangers and was taken to hospital with life-threatening stab wounds. He survived his injuries, but had to spend a week at the hospital and is now recovering at home.
Montague said the two accused are known to each other, but have no connection to the victim. He said there was no argument or altercation leading up to the attack, and dispelled the theory that the victim was a binner.

On April 12, one of the men believed responsible for the attack was arrested at a home on McGill and Nanaimo St.
Thirty-two-year-old Clifford Jackson has now been released from custody. He was charged with aggravated assault and has multiple bail conditions.
Police are still looking for 30-year-old Adam Ferreira, who they believe is the second man involved in the attack.
He remains at large, and there is a Canada-wide warrant out for his arrest.
He is described as 6′ tall and weighing 170 to 180 pounds. He has brown eyes, brown hair and a tattoo of a dragon on his right upper arm.
Ferreira is also wanted for aggravated assault.
Police said they are familiar with him, but he has no prior criminal history.
“It is a violent, random incident, so it’s of concern to us,” Montague said.
There is a possibility Ferreira is outside the Lower Mainland or even B.C.
Anyone who sees or knows his whereabouts is asked not to approach him and call 911 immediately.
