Just before midnight on Wednesday, two men, aged 19 and 21, were stabbed after a confrontation with two other men in Halifax. Both victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were treated at a nearby hospital, and then soon released.
Police investigators do not believe this was a random incident, considering all four men were involved in a heated argument earlier that evening.
On Thursday morning, a 22-year old man turned himself in to police at Police Headquarters. Later that afternoon, he appeared in Halifax Provincial Court and faced charges of assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
