On March 28th, 2016 at about 6:10 p.m., these officers were dispatched to a house in the 700 block of Garnet Street for a report of a serious assault between members of the same household. The early information indicated an adult male had been stabbed in the leg. Our officers arrived to find three people in the house: the victim, the suspect and a witness. While some of our officers controlled the scene and took the suspect into custody, Constables Marcus Simons, Mitchell Wiebe and Tanner Maurice went to the victim’s aid. He’d been stabbed in the leg and it was clear the weapon had opened an artery. The officers used a leg restraint as an improvised tourniquet, stemming the flow of blood and then helped get the victim into a waiting ambulance. The victim required surgery but survived the event.
