A 19-year-old man is charged with attempted murder in connection to a stabbing in Winnipeg's Elmwood neighbourhood.

On Feb. 8, just before 12 a.m., police were called to Noble Avenue where another 19-year-old man was found suffering from several stab wounds to the upper body.

He was rushed to hospital in critical condition, while the 19-year-old suspect was arrested at the scene.

According to police, the two men and another person had been socializing in a home when an argument ignited. The 19-year-old suspect was kicked out but he returned to get his coat.

When allowed back inside, he resumed arguing then grabbed a knife and stabbed the victim, police said.

The 19-year-old suspect has been detained in custody at the Provincial Remand Centre.
