Hamilton stabbing suspect turns himself in to police
A 25-year-old Hamilton man wanted in connection with an east-end stabbing has turned himself in to police.
Officers had arrived at a townhouse complex on Kenora Avenue at 10:15 a.m. on Wednesday morning after receiving reports about a stabbing.
Crews found a 22-year-old male victim and transported him to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, said Hamilton police spokeswoman Debbie McGreal-Dinning in a Thursday statement.
Police conducted interviews and were able to obtain a description of the suspect’s car. A short time late, an officer spotted the vehicle, a Blue Kia Sorrento, driving southbound on Nash Road near Barton Street and attempted to stop the car.
The driver sped away and the officer gave up pursuit because of the Sorrento’s erratic driving, McGreal-Dinning wrote.
She said the suspect turned himself in to Hamilton police headquarters at 2 p.m. on Wednesday. Police took the man, who is known to victim, into custody and charged him with aggravated assault, dangerous operation of a vehicle and two counts of breaking probation, McGreal-Dinning said.
He was held for a bail hearing.
