On July 5, 2022 shortly before 11:00 pm, police responded to a report of a female who had been stabbed by an extended family member at a residence following a fight.

When officers arrived at the residence, they found a 28-year-old female with a large life-threatening cut, which they treated with a tourniquet prior to the arrival of an ambulance.  The victim remains in the hospital in stable condition.

Investigation revealed the suspect used a pair of scissors.

The 28-year-old female suspect left the scene prior to police arrival, but she was located and arrested at her own residence a short time later.  She was lodged at Brandon Police Service and will appear in court today on a charge of Aggravated Assault.
