Thompson RCMP make arrest after stabbing and forcible confinement


A 29-year-old man has been charged with Aggravated Assault, forcible confinement, and robbery after an incident in Thompson.

Early last Friday morning, Thompson RCMP received a report of a disturbance at an apartment building on Copper Road.

Officers arrived and found a 22-year-old man suffering from multiple stab wounds.  They provided life-saving first aid to him until Emergency medical services arrived.

He was transported to Thompson General Hospital in critical condition and remains there.

Samuel Miles, from Kinosao Sipi Cree Nation, had been staying with the victim when Miles held him against his will and robbed him. Miles then stabbed the victim multiple times before fleeing the scene.

Miles was located later that morning at a residence in Thompson.    He remains in custody.
