A resolution date of Dec. 17 has been set for the charges against Alexander Stavropoulos, the man who allegedly stabbed a woman and repeatedly punched her infant in a Marcus Drive parking lot in early June.

He is charged with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and one count of breaching probation in connection to the June 3 incident, where he allegedly stabbed the 35-year-old mother in the neck. 

Her nine-month-old infant was not stabbed, but sustained multiple bruises after being struck repeatedly during the attack. 

In mid-October, the court heard Stavropoulos intended to plead guilty. He will return to Courtroom C at 2 p.m. on Dec. 17.

A publication ban has been imposed.

The incident occurred on June 3. It wasn't his first brush with the law. In 2018, he was shot by police in the downtown transit terminal after charges officers while brandishing two knives.

The video below summarizes that incident, as well as the incident on Marcus Drive from this year.


The attack in the parking lot of a business on Marcus Drive was stopped when Good Samaritan Brent Holder jumped into action. He told reporter Heather Green-Oliver about it a few days after the incident.

Holder recounts what happened the video below:
