A man is in police custody after allegedly stabbing a man and a woman just after 3 a.m. Saturday.
Winnipeg police received two calls about the incident.
One call came from a woman who told police she was in a vehicle on Arlington Street Bridge. The second reported a male had been stabbed and was knocking on doors asking for help in the 900 block of Magnus Avenue.
Both locations were attended to by Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) officers. Each of the victims were located, identified as suffering from severe injuries, and transported to hospital.
The woman was in critical condition and later upgraded to stable condition. The man was transported to hospital in unstable condition and later also upgraded to stable.
WPS says their major crimes unit is still investigating the investigation.
The female victim is believed to have advertised on social media that she was available to be hired for rides. The suspect behind the assault and two acquaintances are believed to have hired her services.
With a male victim to keep her company, the female victim picked up the three individuals at a resident on Selkirk Avenue. An argument during the ride resulted in the stabbing of both the male and the female victims several times.
The suspect and two fellow riders fled while the male victim jumped out of the vehicle. The female victim drove away and called for help.
The suspect was located at the Selkirk Avenue residence just before 5 a.m. and arrested.
A knife believed to have been involved in the attack was later recovered by officers from the home.
The suspect, 21, has been charged with numerous offences, including two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of assault with a weapon.
He remains in custody.
