Police in Iqaluit charged a 34-year-old man with attempted murder following an altercation at a home last Thursday.

RCMP officers went to a home on Oct. 20 at 7:10 p.m. after receiving a report of an altercation, according to a news release the police issued Wednesday afternoon.

When they arrived, they found two female victims with stab wounds inside the home. Both were taken to Qikiqtani General Hospital with what police called non-life-threatening injuries.

The police report did not say how old the victims were or if there was any relationship between the victims and the man accused of trying to kill them.

Police reported that a 34-year-old man was arrested and charged with two counts of attempted murder, one count of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, one count of possession of property obtained by crime and one count of failing to comply with an undertaking.

His next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 1 in Iqaluit.
