An 18-year-old Vanderhoof woman is facing several charges following a stabbing in the city Wednesday.
Police were called out at about 4 p.m. to the incident at a residence in the 1400-block of Third Avenue.
When police arrived they found a man who had been stabbed. A lone female suspect fled before emergency services were called. The victim was transported to hospital for treatment of his non-life threatening injuries.
Through the investigation, a suspect was identified. Patrols were made throughout the downtown core. At approximately 5:30 p.m., the suspect was observed walking near the corner of Sixth Avenue and Dominion Street. When officers tried to arrest her, she attempted to flee on foot. She was caught a short distance later and taken into custody.
Madison Rose Patrick has been charged with assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and resisting arrest.
Patrick was released on a recognizance for court on September 11. The victim and suspect are known to each other. This was a targeted act as a result of a disagreement, say police.
