A Sudbury teenager wanted in relation to a stabbing last week has been arrested and is facing numerous serious charges.

Greater Sudbury Police have arrested Noah Stephen Coutts, 18. Coutts has been wanted in connection with a stabbing that occurred on Wednesday, Aug. 14 inside a residence on Notre Dame Avenue.

Coutts has been charged with attempted murder, assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace, theft under $5,000 and possession of stolen property.

The stabbing victim has been released from hospital after receiving treatment for stab wounds to his chest and arm, say police.

Coutts was arrested after the local police service responded to a break and enter in the Azilda area late last week.

An elderly couple returned to their residence to find two unknown males inside. Both males fled and Coutts was arrested a short distance away after police dogs tracked him.

Coutts now faces additional charges of break and enter, robbery, possession of a dangerous weapon and mischief.

The second male was not located and police are continuing their investigation.

Coutts is being held at the Sudbury District Jail and will make his next court appearance Aug. 28.
