Iqaluit man faces assault charges
Police say 26-year-old stabbed another man in the chest and assaulted a woman
A 26-year-old Iqaluit man has been charged with aggravated assault for stabbing another man in the chest, and assault for an injury to a woman’s head.
The two charges stem from an incident Jan. 9, when RCMP were called to a residence in Iqaluit. When they arrived, they found a man sitting on a couch with what appeared to be a stab wound to his chest, according to a news release from the RCMP.
The women’s injury required stitches, but she and the man are both expected to make full recoveries, said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Pauline Melanson.
The accused is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 21.
