Police have charged a man in relation to a stabbing that occurred in Halifax on the weekend.
On June 19 at approximately 5:20 p.m. police responded to the 2000 block of Gottingen Street for a report of a man who had been stabbed. A 56-year-old man was taken to hospital for treatment of what were believed to be life threatening injuries.
Officers arrested the suspect in the area a short time later. Brian Stanley Knowles, 45, is scheduled to appear in Halifax Provincial Court today to face charges of attempted murder, possession of a weapon and failing to comply with a court order.
Investigators believe this was not a random incident.
