WINNIPEG — A 23-year-old man is in custody and will be charged after his infant son was found stabbed near the eye, Winnipeg police said Sunday.
The man, whose name was not released, will be charged with aggravated assault and assault with a weapon, said Const. Jason Michalyshen.
He said the child, in critical but stable condition, was attacked Saturday afternoon during a domestic dispute between the accused and his 29-year-old common-law wife.
“This argument escalated to the point where the suspect had armed himself with a metal object that was located in the residence.
“He swung it in the direction of the female and the child.”
“The female was holding the child at the time. As a result, the child was struck with the object.”
Witnesses have said they saw the couple arguing over the child on the street when the attack occurred.
