Cranbrook RCMP are investigating after a stabbing in the 1200 Block of Cranbrook Street North over the weekend.

On March 4 at about 6:30 p.m., Cranbrook RCMP received two 911 calls within a 10 minute period. The first call was to a male riding a BMX bike who had threatened two people with a knife. Cranbrook RCMP responded to the area and were actively looking for the male when a second 911 call came in advising of a stabbing which had just occurred.

RCMP responded to the location and noted the suspect being held down by several people. The victim, a 48-year-old Cranbrook resident, had been stabbed multiple times in the arm. He was taken to hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Dylan Thomas Shular, a 21-year-old Cranbrook resident, was arrested on scene and transported to cells. He is currently in custody facing charges of Aggravated Assault and Possession of a Weapon. He will be taken before the courts later today.
