Information made public following Flin Flon stabbing

RCMP have released additional information following a stabbing in Flin Flon April 1.

Flin Flon RCMP arrived at a home around 9 p.m. after receiving a report that someone had been stabbed. Upon arrival, police found a 16-year-old male inside suffering from a stab wound that a RCMP news release described as “life-threatening.” An officer provided first aid for the victim, applying pressure to stop bleeding before paramedics arrived. The youth was taken to hospital and transferred to a facility in Saskatoon, where he remained in stable but critical condition. It is hoped he will make a full recovery from the attack.

Not long after the initial incident, officers located the suspect, another 16-year-old male. He was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose and multiple bail violations. He was scheduled to appear in provincial court in The Pas April 4.

The suspect cannot be named, as per the Youth Criminal Justice Act. RCMP are investigating the incident.

“It is accurate to say the suspect is known to police,” said Sgt. Paul Manaigre with Manitoba RCMP.

No additional RCMP units were brought to Flin Flon to investigate the stabbing, but RCMP from Flin Flon have consulted units elsewhere to maintain proper investigative protocol.

Both suspects are believed to be known to each other. Drugs or organized criminal activity are not believed to be factors in the attack.
