A 23-year-old man was rushed to hospital on Friday after an early morning assault at a north-side fourplex.

Lethbridge police were called to a residence in the 1000 block of 27A Street North just before 6:30 a.m.

The victim was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, “including stab wounds,” police said.

A male and female suspect left the home before police arrived but were found at a residence on Stafford Drive North later in the morning.

Both were arrested without incident and the woman was treated by EMS for a cut on her hand.

Police said the 21-year-old woman was the wife of the victim in the earlier assault.

The man arrested with her was her 24-year-old brother, police said.

Lethbridge police allege this “is a domestic assault and the investigation is ongoing to further interview the parties involved and determine the circumstances.”

Charges are pending against the woman and her brother.

In order to protect the victim, the names of the pair won’t be released.
