Documents allege man accused in stabbing spree got knives at West Edmonton Mall

Police believe a man accused of a stabbing spree at a grocery warehouse first stopped at West Edmonton Mall and bought two large knives before heading to work.

EDMONTON — Police believe a man accused of a stabbing spree at a grocery warehouse first stopped at West Edmonton Mall and bought two large knives before heading to work.

Two men were killed and four others wounded during the bloody attack at the Loblaws building last month.

Court documents used to obtain search warrants allege Jayme Pasieka had been drinking alcohol in his apartment before he strapped on a military-style vest and armed himself with two small knives.

The documents say he next went to the Supply Sergeant surplus store at the mall and purchased two bigger military knives, then headed to the warehouse for his afternoon shift.

The documents also detail the victims’ injuries: at least two dozen stab and slash wounds and a bite mark on one man’s leg.

Pasieka, who is 30, remains in custody on charges of of first-degree murder, attempted murder and weapons offences.

None of the evidence in the documents has been proven in court.
