BROCKVILLE – A man in his 50s is in life-threatening condition in a Kingston hospital after a stabbing in the city Wednesday night.

Another person – a 30-year-old woman – has been arrested in connection to the crime. She’s been charged with aggravated assault, failing to comply with a release order and failing to comply with probation.

Brockville police say the 55-year-old victim was stabbed multiple times in the torso at a King Street East home, between Park and Bethune Streets, during a domestic dispute.

One of the Brockville police officers rushed the victim to Brockville General Hospital. The victim was then transferred by paramedics to Kingston General Hospital with “potentially life-threatening injuries.”

As of noon Thursday, the victim is still in hospital, according to Brockville police.

They are appealing for witnesses.
