Investigators with the HRP/RCMP Integrated General Investigation Section have arrested a man in connection to a stabbing that occurred this past weekend in Halifax.
On April 13, shortly before 10 p.m., officers responded to a stabbing in the 5600 block of Spring Garden Road. Investigators learned that the 38-year-old male victim was standing on the sidewalk when he was approached by the suspect who stabbed him repeatedly in the upper body. The suspect fled the area and a concerned citizen drove the victim to hospital. The victim was treated for life-threatening injuries and remains in hospital. This is not a random act as the victim and the suspect know each other.
On April 15, investigators arrested a 38-year-old Halifax man in relation to this investigation. He has been charged with attempted murder, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace and three counts of breaching a court order. He will appear in Halifax Provincial Court tomorrow.
