Fatal stabbing - Sunday, Dec. 25, 2016

One person has been charged after a fatal stabbing yesterday.

At approximately 6:30 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 25, 2016, police were called to a disturbance in the 0-100 block of Fonda DR S.E. Upon arrival, officers discovered a man who had been seriously assaulted.

The victim was transported to hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
