A stabbing in Yarmouth Tuesday evening sent a Lunenburg County man to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Around 6 p.m. a 20-year-old man arrived at the Yarmouth Regional Hospital suffering from numerous stab wounds, some "serious," others superficial, said RCMP Staff Sgt. Kevin Surette.

After a preliminary investigation, police determined that the man had been stabbed at a home on Southeast Street.

Officers then went to the home and arrested a 16-year-old male without incident.

Police said the victim and suspect are known to each other.

The 16-year-old faces charges of aggravated assault and assault with a weapon and is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
