A Nunavik man has been arrested and charged with stabbing a young woman outside of a patient residence in Montreal.

On Jan. 5 just before 10 p.m., Montreal police were called to Ullivik, Nunavik’s patient residence in the city’s Dorval neighbourhood, where an 18-year-old woman had been stabbed outdoors.

The Montreal police service said the woman suffered stab wounds to her upper body and was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

A 28-year-old man from Akulivik was arrested on the scene, said police spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant.

Ricky Noah Qinuajuak appeared in court on Wednesday, Jan. 6, where he faced charges of assault, uttering death threats and carrying a weapon for dangerous purposes.

The Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services would not comment on the incident.

    😝 Where we’re the Ullivik guards during all this drama? Don’t tell me that there is no security camera around the Ullivik premises cause there are.😛
