‘Possible stabbing’ in Inuvik sends man to hospital; RCMP investigating


Police in Inuvik are investigating a “possible stabbing” that sent one man to hospital.

Early Friday morning, Inuvik RCMP located a man in the Union Street area who appeared to have been injured with an “edged weapon” following an altercation, according to a news release issued Monday.

The man was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police arrested an adult male following the incident. His name won’t be released at this time, as the investigation into the possible stabbing is ongoing, say RCMP.

“Police have no reason to believe there is any danger to the public and this was an isolated incident,” states Monday’s news release.

RCMP are asking anyone who may have “heard or seen” the altercation to contact police at 867-777-1111.
