STURGEON LAKE FIRST NATION, Sask. – A man is recovering in hospital and a woman has been charged after a stabbing on a Saskatchewan First Nation.
Mounties were called to a residence on the Sturgeon Lake First Nation late Sunday evening after receiving a complaint of a stabbing.
Officers found a 47-year-old man with a stab wound to his chest. He was taken to a Prince Albert hospital and then transported to a Saskatoon hospital for treatment. There is no word on his condition.
Police say their initial investigation found a man and a woman had returned to the residence from a gathering and were preparing food.
A second woman heard a noise from the kitchen and found the man.
The first female had fled the residence but a canine track was unable to locate her. She was arrested the next day at her home on the First Nation.
Nancy Caroline Turner, 46, is charged with aggravated assaulted. She made her first court appearance in Prince Albert on Tuesday.
Mounties say Turner and the victim are known to each other and alcohol is considered a factor.
