Double Stabbing Charges Withdrawn


CC: s.267(a) x 2 – Assault with a Weapon


My client entered a room where two individuals were watching TV. He was carrying two steak knives. He held one knife to the throat of one person and began screaming over and over that no one was leaving. When the other person tried to get up and flee, my client stabbed him. Then, when both persons were trying to get out the back door, my client stabbed the other person as well.


The matter was set for trial. The Crown was unable to locate the victims, in order serve them with subpoenas, and withdrew the charges. No criminal convictions.
