Stabbing suspect turns himself in

A twenty-year-old man who was allegedly involved in a double stabbing at the District Public House turned himself in to RCMP Monday.

A suspect in the Sept. 29 double-stabbing at the District Public House Pub has turned himself into police.

Twenty-year-old Dustin Russell came forward Monday, and has since been charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm. He has been released from custody pending an Oct. 22 court appearance.

“This is a great conclusion to the investigation by the Serious Crime Section,” said RCMP Cst. Cynthia Kershaw. “Investigators are thankful the alleged suspect did the right thing by turning himself in.”

The two men who were stabbed have since been released from hospital.
