A man has been charged in connection with a March 3 stabbing in a parkade in downtown Halifax.

Michael Drover, 31, is charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

A 28-year-old man was taken to hospital with multiple stab wounds after being found by a passerby on the Granville Street level of the parkade.

Halifax police didn't know the man's condition Thursday.

Drover turned himself in to police on Monday.

Police identified him as a person of interest last week in relation to the incident and had been making efforts to find him.

"When people turn themselves in ... generally it's because they know that police are actively seeking them in the community and are exhausting all available resources to try and bring that person into custody for questioning,"Const. Kathryn Willett said.

Drover appeared in Halifax provincial court on March 13, but is not currently in custody.
