Male youth to be charged in stabbing

On June 27, 2019 shortly after 11:00 pm police responded to a home on the city’s northside for a report of a stabbing.

An adult male sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries, and was transported to the hospital where he is in stable condition. Members of the Primary Response Team, Major Crime Team, and the Forensic Identification Section responded to the call.

A 17-year old male was arrested and will appear in court today to face charges of Aggravated Assault, Assault with a Weapon, and others. The Youth Criminal Justice Act prohibits us from identifying the accused even once charges are laid.

The parties were known to one another and the matter remains under investigation.
