Police are also investigating a stabbing that happened in the Fort Gary Apartments around 7:15pm Sunday.

When officers arrived at a residence in the building, they found a woman suffering from an apparent stab wound.

A female suspect had already left the scene, however her identity is known both to the victim and police.

RCMP say charges have not been laid yet but that their investigation is ongoing. The condition of the female victim is unknown at this time.
