Arrested after Sunday’s stabbing

A 27-year-old Red Deer man has been charged with attempted murder after a stabbing a male several times at an Oriole Park residence early Sunday morning.

Red Deer RCMP were called to a reported “serious assault” at a residence on Orient Green at 5:20 a.m.

On Sunday the stabbing victim was in hospital with serious injuries. Police said the victim and suspect were known to each other and did not believe the incident was random.

Buffalo returns to court Aug. 16.
