Investigators in the General Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division have charged two men, a woman and youth in connection with a stabbing that happened in Dartmouth yesterday morning.
At approximately 2:30 a.m. a patrol officer was walking in the area of the 0-100 block of Primrose Street in Dartmouth. The officer was approached by a citizen asking for help as two people had been stabbed in a nearby residence. Officers attended the scene and located a 49-year-old man and an 18-year-old man who were both suffering from stab wounds to their extremities. They were transported to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries and have since been released.

He is scheduled to appear in Halifax Provincial Youth Court this morning.
