Bonnyville RCMP investigate stabbing and charge male

The Mounties in Bonnyville have arrested one person for allegedly stabbing another.

On Wednesday, April 28, at approximately 3:30 p.m., the Bonnyville RCMP were called to a residence in downtown Bonnyville for a male who was stabbed multiple times and required assistance.

The 27-year-old male was rushed to hospital for his injuries where he remains in hospital with serious injuries.

Further investigation led police to search a residence for a suspect who was located and arrested.

For public safety, a portion of the roadway was closed off on 54th Street for approximately one hour while police conducted their investigation. A search warrant was subsequently conducted at a residence on the street where evidence was seized in relation to this investigation. Arthur C. Green/Lakeland Connect

  • Aggravated assault.

Following a judicial hearing, Cardinal was released with conditions to appear in Bonnyville Provincial Court on May 18, 2021.
