Bonnyville man facing charges of aggravated assault, victim stabbed multiple times

A Bonnyville man is facing charges of aggravated assault after a stabbing last week.

The incident happened at Squires Court in Bonnyville in the early morning of Sept. 7 where a fight broke out.

The victim was stabbed multiple times and was taken to hospital to be treated for injuries, which were determined to be non-life threatening.

RCMP responded and arrested 27-year-old Alexander Hewitt, who turned himself in to police.

He faces charges of aggravated assault.

Hewitt was released on a “high” no-cash bail, said Sgt. Kim Hillier.

Due to extenuating circumstances, she said there was little threat going forward of a similar situation between Hewitt and the victim.

His court date is Sept. 24 at Bonnyville Provincial Court.
