A 50-year-old Kentville man is accused of trying to kill two people Friday night at a home in the north part of the town.

Police were called to a residence on Exhibition Street around 9:45 p.m. and learned that a 41-year-old man and a 41-year-old woman had been assaulted.

The woman has serious injuries and remains in hospital, but she is expected to survive. The man was also injured, but he’s been released from hospital.

The suspect was arrested at the scene of the assaults.

Sherlock Peter Bowen is facing two counts of attempted murder and is scheduled to appear in Kentville provincial court today.
