A Cranbrook resident is in custody after stabbing her partner in the thigh in the early morning hours of February 20th, 2016.

In response to a report of a domestic altercation at a local apartment building, Cranbrook RCMP found a male in obvious distress with a serious thigh wound.

The officers were quick to initiate emergency first aid to the male and were able to stabilize him until BC Ambulance Services arrived.

The victim was then transported to East Kootenay Regional Hospital by BC Ambulance where priority emergency room treatment improved his condition further.  The male is currently in surgery and is expected to make a full recovery.

Police arrested a female at the scene and are holding her in custody to take before the courts.  This was a targeted attack in a domestic relationship with no risk to the public.
