Trial ordered for man accused in 2016 stabbing

Police were called to an Oriole Park home about 5 a.m. on Aug. 6, 2016

A man accused in a 2016 stabbing in Red Deer is going to trial.

Police were called to an Oriole Park home about 5 a.m. on Aug. 6, 2016 after getting a report of a serious assault.

Shortly after, police were alerted that a man suffering from stab wounds was at Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.

RCMP quickly determined the two incidents were related and arrested a suspect at a home on Orient Close.

Linden Joseph Buffalo, who was 26 at the time of the alleged incident, was charged with attempted murder, assault and mischief under $5,000.

A preliminary hearing was held last week and Buffalo was ordered to stand trial on charges of aggravated assault and mischief under $5,000.

A trial date has not yet been set.
