RCMP respond to two stabbings

Local RCMP members busy with separate, unrelated stabbings over the weekend.

The Cranbrook RCMP is currently looking into two separate stabbings over this past weekend.

In the early morning hours of Saturday, September 17, Cranbrook RCMP were called to a residence in the 700 Block of Patterson St. on a report that a stabbing had taken place and that an ambulance was required.

Upon arrival, RCMP found a 25-year-old man had been stabbed in the abdomen. The matter is drug-related and not a random act. After stabbing the man, the suspect fled the scene. The victim was taken to hospital and is being treated for his injuries. The suspect was later located and arrested in Penticton with the assistance of Penticton RCMP. The 29-year-old suspect is being held in custody to be dealt with before the courts.

Later that evening, a second stabbing was reported to Cranbrook RCMP as members responded to to a disturbance in the 2200 block of 12 St N. A woman refused to leave the residence and fought with the occupants, resulting in one of the occupants getting slashed with a knife.

Police attended the scene and located the woman. She was immediately taken into custody. The 28-year-old Cranbrook resident was released by the Judicial Justice Centre on extensive conditions. She is to appear in court at a later date. Again this was not a random act and the parties involved knew each other.

The victims of both stabbings did not suffer life threatening injuries.
