Youth stabbing suspect is still in jail

A 14-year-old boy remained in custody Tuesday morning after being arrested for allegedly stabbing another teen on Saturday afternoon.

A 14-year-old boy remained in custody Tuesday morning after being arrested for allegedly stabbing another teen on Saturday afternoon.

Police were called to Orchard Plaza on Cooper Road shortly before 4 p.m. on Saturday after a witness called to report a stabbing in a parking lot outside the movie theatre.

Officers arrived to find a 15-year-old boy suffering from a serious stab wound to his upper chest. He was taken to hospital, where he remained on Monday in stable condition.

Soon after arriving, police arrested a 14-year-old boy in connection with the stabbing and say they recovered the knife used in the crime.

Police say the two youths knew each other and that an altercation between the two preceded the stabbing.

Const. Steve Holmes said it appears that youth carrying weapons is becoming more common. “The scary part is that they’re not averse to using them,” he said.

Police say the arrested youth was expected to make a court appearance Monday on charges of aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. However, his case was put over to Tuesday and results weren’t known at press deadline.
