Weekend stabbings in Winnipeg's North End lead to 2 arrests
Winnipeg police have charged a man and a woman with attempted murder in two separate stabbings in the city's North End over the weekend.
The first incident happened at a house party Friday evening in the 700 block of Magnus Avenue.
Police say a 25-year-old man seriously assaulted a 15-year-old boy, then stabbed a 19-year-old man in the upper body with a knife.
The 19-year-old ran out of the house and was located by emergency crews. He was taken to hospital in critical condition and has since been upgraded to guarded condition.
The 15-year-old is in stable condition in hospital, having sustained multiple injuries, according to police.
Officers, with the help of the canine unit, tracked down the suspect just before 3 a.m. Saturday near Magnus Avenue and Arlington Street.
The man has been charged with attempt to commit murder and assault causing bodily harm. He is in custody at the Remand Centre.
Woman stabbed in Pritchard Avenue home
The second attack happened at about 6 a.m. Saturday — several hours after the first incident — at a home in the 600 block of Pritchard Avenue.
A dispute erupted between two women, aged 20 and 22. The younger woman stopped the other woman from leaving the home and stabbed her with a knife, according to police.
The 22-year-old woman was stabbed multiple times before she ran out of the home.
The 20-year-old was later arrested at the residence and charged with attempt to commit murder, forcible confinement, possession of a weapon and failing to comply with the conditions of a court order. She remains in custody.
