RCMP in Digby have arrested an 18-year-old man accused of stabbing another teen Monday evening on Water Street near the post office.

The victim is 17 years old and was taken to Digby General Hospital by a passerby after he was stabbed around 6:30 p.m. He had injuries that weren’t life-threatening and was transferred to hospital in Yarmouth.

Police also arrested a 17-year-old Tuesday morning in relation to the stabbing. The two suspects are due to appear in Digby provincial court Tuesday.

They are both charged with assault with a weapon. Police said the stabbing was not random and the suspects knew the victim.
