Edmonton police have issued several Canada-wide warrants for the arrest of a 26-year-old man with links to Salmon Arm who is accused of violently assaulting a homeowner in January.
Levi Eden, whose Facebook page says he lives in Salmon Arm and attended Salmon Arm Secondary, allegedly broke into a home in southeast Edmonton at about 10:15 p.m. on Jan. 29. Police say the assault occurred throughout the residence before Eden is alleged to have produced a knife and further attacked the complainant.
Eden is accused of stabbing a 50-year-old man in the home, who was rushed to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The man has since been released from hospital.
He is wanted on multiple charges, including attempted murder, aggravated assault, break and enter, uttering threats and possession of a dangerous weapon.
Edmonton Police issued a media statement saying they believe the suspect has connections to both Calgary and Salmon Arm.
They state Eden is considered armed and dangerous. He should not be approached.
