A 20-year-old Smithers area woman is facing an assault charge after her boyfriend was stabbed.
The 27-year-old victim called RCMP Wednesday morning to say that he’d been stabbed sometime during the night.
RCMP and BC Ambulance crews found the man on the street in the 3400 block of Alfred Avenue.
Police described him as conscious, talking, and cooperative when they got to him. The man was treated in hospital for apparent stab wounds to his lower right back and upper right shoulder as well as cuts and bruises to his face and arms.
RCMP say they arrested the man’s girlfriend a short time later. The woman has been charged with Assault Causing Bodily Harm and is scheduled for a bail hearing Friday morning.
The man has since been released from hospital.
