N.B. man arrested in N.L. on Canada-wide warrant
Christopher Fergusson wanted in connection with May stabbing incident in Moncton
A Moncton man wanted for a May stabbing incident has been arrested in St. John's.
A Canada-wide warrant had been issued for Christopher William James Fergusson, 25, a week after the incident.
According to the RCMP, Fergusson was wanted on charges of break and enter with intent to commit the indictable offence of aggravated assault, and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace.
On the evening of May 11, a 33-year-old man was stabbed in the New Brunswick city. The victim was hospitalized with serious injuries.
Another man had already been arrested in connection with the case.
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary arrested Fergusson in the area of Cabot Street and Barter's Hill near downtown St. John's around 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Police say they received information indicating that he was within RNC jurisdiction.
Fergusson was led into provincial court at St. John’s Wednesday morning by sheriff’s officers.
RCMP officers from New Brunswick were en route to Newfoundland to transport him back to that province.
