WINNIPEG – A man is behind bars after a woman was stabbed in the West End on Tuesday night.
Emergency crews responded to a home on Sherburn Street near Wellington Avenue at around 6:30 p.m. for reports of an assault.
A woman in her thirties was found with stab wounds and taken from the scene in critical condition. She has since been upgraded to stable.
Winnipeg Police say the suspect fled the area before they arrived. Officers say they also received a report of a break and enter in Crestview later that night. It appears a man forced his way into a home on Buchanan Boulevard where he was able to steal a set of keys and a vehicle.
Officers arrested Darcy Stirling, 36, on Thursday.
He faces many charges including aggravated assault along with break and enter.
Stirling remains in custody.
