A series of downtown stabbings left three people with serious but non-life-threatening injuries on Thursday morning, and a 34-year-old suspect arrested. 

In a media release, Greater Sudbury Police Service notes they were dispatched to an unnamed “agency” on Larch Street in relation to a weapons complaint shortly after 11 a.m. 

“Information provided was that an individual had attended the agency, became upset, stabbed multiple people and then fled on foot,” according to the media release.

Police found three people who had sustained what they described as serious but non-life-threatening injuries. They were taken to hospital by paramedics.

A description of the suspect was given to the 911 Emergency Communications Centre and broadcast to responding officers. 

In return, police located and arrested the person they believe was responsible for the stabbings, on Minto Street at Larch Street. 

Upon searching the individual, officers located what they believe is the knife used during the attack.

The 34-year-old suspect has been charged with: 

  • Aggravated Assault x3
  • Weapons Dangerous x3
  • Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose

The suspect is being held in custody overnight and will attend bail court during the morning of Dec. 1 to answer to the charges.
