A 39-year-old woman is facing multiple charges after a woman was stabbed in a McDonald’s parking lot in Halifax on Sunday.
Halifax Regional Police (HRP) say officers responded to reports of an altercation in a McDonald’s parking lot on Kempt Road involving pedestrians and vehicles at approximately 1:25 a.m.
About five minutes later, a 25-year-old woman was located at the QEII Health Sciences Centre suffering from stab wounds. Her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
Officers later learned she was involved in the original altercation in the McDonald’s parking lot, police say.
Police say they also learned there was a second disturbance just before 1:25 a.m. at a business in the 3200 block of Kempt Road.
Two men and two women were arrested as a result of the incident. Three of them have since been released without charges.
HRP say a 39-year-old woman now faces charges of assault causing bodily harm and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
