RCMP were left trying to sort out the details in relation to an alleged stabbing last week.

Initially, police received a report from a female on the morning of Feb. 15 a man had showed up at her residence and said he had been stabbed.

The caller told police the man had told her the stabbing had taken place the night before.

Then police received a call from staff at the Stuart Lake Hospital a male patient had been treated for wounds which appeared to result from a stabbing and he had then been discharged.

Upon investigation of the male victim, RCMP discovered he was on conditions not to be in contact with a female involved in the incident and not to be in Fort St. James.

The victim then was arrested on breach of conditions and was questioned in relation to the potential stabbing.

The victim did have wounds under his arm and on his stomach consistent with a stabbing.

Eventually, the man disclosed to police who allegedly stabbed him and where the incident took place.

RCMP then went to the residence and arrested the female suspect for assault with a weapon and executed a search warrant on the premises the same evening.

Police said they did find evidence of a stabbing.

The suspect has been charged with assault with a weapon, but her name can not be released because the incident involves domestic violence.

She will appear in court on March 17.
