Youth charged in stabbing incident

We have charged a teen in relation to an assault that occurred earlier this week in the southwest.

At approximately 1:30 p.m., on Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2023, we were called to the area of Southland Drive and Elbow Drive S.W., for reports of an assault that occurred outside the Tim Horton’s located at 10233 Elbow Drive S.W. Upon arrival, officers located a man who appeared to be suffering from multiple stab wounds. The man was transported to hospital in life-threatening condition, where he remains. The man’s condition has since been upgraded to serious but stable.

It is believed the man became involved in an argument with a group of youth while inside the Tim Horton’s, and the group eventually exited the eatery. The man exited the establishment, and a confrontation ensued between the man and the youths, resulting in one of the youth stabbing the man.

The youth and the victim are not known to one another.

The teen cannot be named under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

As a result, a 13-year-old male has been charged with one count of aggravated assault and one count of possession of an imitation weapon for a dangerous purpose.

The youth will next appear in court on Tuesday, March 7, 2023.

The Calgary Police Service would like to thank the numerous citizens who took the time to speak with officers after witnessing this violent incident.
