RCMP on P.E.I. are providing more details about a stabbing in Murray River Friday evening that left a 33-year-old man with knife wounds.

The 51-year-old woman accused of the stabbing was arrested by Codiac RCMP at the Moncton airport on Saturday.

Sgt. Kevin Baillie of the Kings District RCMP said police were called to the man's home in Murray River at around 6:44 p.m. 

"He had received some deep cuts to one of his hands, also to an arm," said Baillie.

The man was treated at Montague Hospital. Baillie said it took some time to catch up with the accused.

"We located the female's vehicle in East Royalty the next morning," said Baillie.

"She had apparently left the residence in another vehicle and she was subsequently located at Moncton airport Saturday afternoon. And at that point we had officers from the Codiac RCMP attend to the airport and arrest her. "     

Baillie said the woman was brought back to the Island. She faces charges of aggravated assault and assault with a weapon.

The woman will remain in custody until her next court appearance in Charlottetown Tuesday morning.
