SUMMERSIDE — A city man was taken to hospital after allegedly being stabbed Saturday night.

latest news

The man was stabbed a number of times in the chest and legs following an altercation in the city around 10 p.m.

Another man has been arrested and charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, assault with a weapon and public mischief — damage to property — equal to or under $5,000.

Summerside Police Services were called in to investigate the incident, which allegedly took place after a Notre Dame Street resident, who had his windows smashed out of a trailer parked in his yard, decided to track down those he felt were responsible.

The owner of the trailer and a second individual, who had a description of the alleged individuals responsible for the damage, located the four suspects on Northumberland Avenue near Willow Avenue.

An altercation took place between the owner of the trailer and a 21-year-old Breadalbane man, who was allegedly armed with a knife.

The owner of the trailer was allegedly stabbed a number of times by the 21-year-old in the chest and the legs.

The Breadalbane man fled from the scene but was later arrested by Summerside police.

The victim was taken to Prince County Hospital, treated and later released.

Police say that it is believed that the two other people who had been with the suspect may have known a family member of the victim.

Police are not releasing any further information at this time as the investigation is ongoing and further charges may be laid against others.

    this is the problem with our Justice System! anyone can do whatever they want, because they know they'll only get a slap on the rist if that! BUT everyone also knows that the "TRAILER" that got the windows smashed out... & is located across from the rink....is a well known hang out for Druggies...so what do they expect is going to happen? it's only a matter of time before people start dying ..because of Drugs...it's already destroying so many kids lives, and the "victims" who turn to offenders, are getting Younger & Younger every year. If only The Drug Dealers would be put away(or kill each other..I really don't care..they are scum!) and alot..(not all)..Parents would actually notice where their kids are & what they're doing and Raise them right..or at the very least..like they care what happens to them, then S'Side & all of PEI would be a lot safer and nicer to live in. As it is.. Because of Drugs & self centered parents who are either too lazy to parent or just want to be a "friend" to their child instead being of a real parent, (and some of these parents are druggies themselves) nothing feels safe anymore. in your own home or when you leave...I can only imagine what it'll be like in another 20 years! ALl because so many kids in this town are being sold drugs and in turn ..now doing & selling them ....and it's only getting worse...

    I'd call this punk a 21 year old boy, not a man! And how is that not attempted murder?

    "Another man has been arrested and charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, assault with a weapon and public mischief — damage to property — equal to or under $5,000." Why is this guy only getting an assault with a weapon charge....multiple stab wounds to the legs and chest do not constitute an assault charge in my neck of the woods. seems like attempted murder to be but who am I to judge.........
