Police had been searching for the man since Tuesday morning after officers responded to a home in the 200 block of Saddlemead Green N.E. and found a woman suffering from multiple stab wounds.
The victim was rushed to hospital in critical condition and was later upgraded to serious condition.
A young boy who fled the home called 911 and a neighbour said it appeared at least one other child, a toddler, witnessed the attack.
Police noted it wasn't the first time they had responded to the home on a domestic complaint.
The man was also wanted in other jurisdictions for other violent crimes, CBC News has learned.
