Attempted murder charges laid after knife attack


A man was charged with attempted murder after paramedics discovered a stab-wound victim on a routine call in Balm Beach.

Paramedics called police once they determined the victim was suffering from knife wounds, Monday at 11:15 p.m.

The male victim was triaged initially by paramedics and brought to a local hospital. However, he was later transported by ORNGE to a Toronto-area trauma hospital for further treatment of life-threatening injuries caused by an edged weapon.

After a brief on-scene investigation, the suspect was located and arrested at the Balm Beach residence.

A 33-year-old Penetanguishene man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault.

The accused is held for a bail hearing and will appear before the Ontario Court of Justice on a future date.

Investigators advise that there is no threat to public safety due to this investigation.
