A 52-year-old Niverville man is recovering in a Winnipeg hospital after being stabbed early Thursday.
The victim heard a noise in his garage at around 12:40 a.m. and went to check it out. That’s when he came across a suspect in his garage. The two men, who police say were known each other, became involved in a struggle and the victim was stabbed once in the upper body.
The suspect fled, but RCMP soon located a 20-year-old Niverville man and took him into custody.
He has been charged with assault with a weapon, break and enter, assault causing bodily harm and breach of an undertaking.
The victim is listed in stable condition.
