Police investigation into an apparent stabbing on the weekend will result in charges against both parties to the incident.
On Saturday, November 30, 2019, at about 3:25 p.m., police were dispatched to the 1100 block of Montague Street, for a weapons offence involving a knife. Early information indicated an injured male had approached a residence asking for help, and then left in a vehicle. Police went to hospital and located a 20 year-old male, who was the victim of an apparent stabbing. Continued investigation into this incident led officers to locate a 22 year-old male, who had also sustained injuries which required medical attention in hospital. As the result of further investigation into this incident: upon his release from hospital, the 20 year-old male (first male), was charged with Assault with a Weapon. The 22 year-old male (second male) was charged with Attempted Murder.
Since each male is the alleged victim of the other, the Regina Police Service will not release their names. This is in keeping with our policy and long-standing practice of not releasing the names of (living) victims of crime. The 20 year-old is charged with Assault With a Weapon [267(a) CC] and Breach of Probation [733.1(1) CC]. The twenty-two year old male is charged with Attempted Murder [239 CC]. Both males made their first court appearances on their charges in Provincial Court at 9:30 a.m. today (Monday), December 2, 2019.
