A 31-year-old man from Little Red First Nation is facing an assault charge after allegedly stabbing a man in the back during an argument.

Prince Albert Police received a call Tuesday morning, reporting the stabbing. When police arrived at the scene on Second Ave. W. at roughly 11 a.m., they found a male victim on the sidewalk with several stab wounds in his back. According to police, the victim and suspect knew each other, and an argument between them led to the suspect stabbing the victim and fleeing.

While the victim was taken to hospital for treatment, police set up a containment area to search for the suspect, who was located and arrested on 28th St. W.

Larry Elias Bird, 31, was charged with aggravated assault in connection with the stabbing. He is scheduled to make his first appearance in court Tuesday morning in Prince Albert. The charge has not yet been tested before the court, and he is presumed innocent at this stage.
