A 22-year-old man has been charged in connection with a stabbing that took place in downtown Bradford during the early morning hours of Friday, South Simcoe police say.
At about 1 a.m., officers say they were called to the Four Corners at Holland Street and Simcoe Road after a man was stabbed.
After police arrived, officers learned that two men were arguing on the street before the situation escalated to a physical altercation that ended with a stabbing.
Officers say the suspect fled on foot and that the victim, a 30-year-old Barrie man, was taken to the hospital, where he was treated for a minor injury and released.
According to police, a knife was found at the scene.
Officers say the suspect was later identified and turned himself in on Monday.
Daniel Sampson-Hall, 22, from Bradford, was subsequently charged with assault, assault with a weapon, aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, carrying a concealed weapon, failure to comply with conditions and four counts of possession of a weapon contrary to a prohibition order.
Sampson-Hall was held for a bail hearing.
