Police charged a 24-year-old man after he allegedly stabbed someone during an altercation Friday night.

Two men engaged in a fight at a bus stop in Brampton, said Peel Regional Police Const. Thomas Ruttan.

During the altercation, the man allegedly stabbed an 18-year-old man.

Police received a call around 11:30 p.m. Friday and found the victim when they arrived on scene.

He was transported to a trauma centre with critical injuries, said Ruttan. The victim is now in "critical, but stable condition," he said.

Police arrested a suspect and an 18-year-old woman shortly afterwards.

Police charged Shermmar Doyon Cooper, 24, from Brampton with aggravated assault.

He will appear in court Saturday for a bail hearing.

The woman was released unconditionally.
