Mohammed Cortes Torres charged in stabbing death of Naseb Fazil in South Vancouver

MOHAMMED Cortes Torres, 25, has been charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing of a 19-year-old man outside a South Vancouver nightclub last year.

Vancouver Police homicide detectives launched an investigation on May 23, 2022, following the death of Naseb Fazil, who was involved in a confrontation outside the Gallery nightclub.

A fight broke out on the street between a large group near Southwest Marine Drive and Hudson Street at 3:30 a.m. and officers found Fazil suffering from stab wounds. He was taken to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

That investigation led to the arrest of Cortes Torres on Sunday and has now been charged with second-degree murder, Vancouver police said on Tuesday.

Cortes Torres was a Surrey resident at the time of the homicide. Police believe he was more recently staying on Vancouver Island.

Saanich Police assisted during the investigation.
