PORT HARDY—A man appeared in court Tuesday, accused of the weekend stabbing of a local woman.

Thomas Patrick Fenton faces charges of assault with a weapon, uttering threats and driving while impaired following the incident.

Crown counsel alleged that Fenton consumed drugs and alcohol in a Port Hardy apartment on June 21, and stabbed the victim nine times in the back and left arm before fleeing the scene. She was taken to hospital, where she received 26 stitches and was later released.

Fenton is then alleged to have crashed his blue sedan into a wooded area off Granville Street in the town. He was later arrested by RCMP officers, and according to Crown, he was aggressive towards officers during that arrest.

Fenton was released on strict bail conditions and will return to court July 15.
