Two people in an Oshawa apartment were sent to hospital with non-life threatening injuries after being stabbed in an unprovoked attack.
On Sunday, January 27, at approximately 6 p.m., Central East Division officers were called to an apartment on Simcoe Street North in Oshawa regarding a double stabbing incident.
A 29-year-old male, who lives in the same building, attended the apartment of a 22-year-old female and her 28-year-old male friend. Without provocation, the accused stabbed the female and when her friend intervened, he was stabbed multiple times.
Officers arrived and arrested the 29-year-old suspect outside of the apartment building. The female and male victims were rushed to a local hospital with non-life-threatening wounds. The 28-year-old male was later transferred to a Toronto trauma centre for further treatment.
The 29-year-old male suffers from mental health issues. He was charged with two counts of aggravated assault; two counts of assault with a weapon; break and enter, commit; possession of weapon for committing a criminal offence and carry concealed weapon. He was held for a bail hearing.
Anyone with information of assistance to investigators is asked to contact D/Cst. Woolley of the Central East Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 2732.
