UPDATE: Assault charge likely following stabbing
A 28-year-old Kamloops man will likely face a charge of aggravated assault following an early-morning stabbing this week at a Sahali apartment.
A 25-year-old Pritchard man was knifed in the neck at about 12:30 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 15.
Police believe the attack occurred in an apartment on Whiteshield Crescent. The man was later dropped off at Royal Inland Hospital by an acquaintance.
The man who drove the victim to hospital was later arrested and released. That man's roommate was arrested the following day and is expected to be formally charged with aggravated assault.
Both the accused and the man who drove the victim to hospital live in the Whiteshield Crescent apartment and both are known to police.
