Stabbing in apartment
A disturbing case of a young man stabbed Sunday morning has Barrie Police investigating.
Officers said the 22-year-old man went over to see a friend at a Dunlop Street house, but got into a shouting match with someone inside, and, soon after 3 a.m., sustained knife wounds. He took several stabs to the torso and was treated at RVH, and from there, to Sunnybrook in Toronto.
His condition was thought life-threatening, but, after surgery, it looked like he’d pull through.
Police are still looking for whoever did this. Anyone with information is asked to call Barrie Police at 725-7025 or Crime Stoppers.
Also Sunday, police fielded a 911 call about a couple going at it after a drinking bout over a football game. The male half of the twosome apparently made some remark that his girlfriend didn’t like, and she allegedly attacked him. She was held for domestic assault and then released on bail.
Don’t drink and drive!
Police answered another 911 call regarding a driver weaving all over Bayfield Street early Saturday evening, and hitting curbs. Officers pulled the man over and asked for a breath sample, which he refused. He was arrested accordingly and released for a future date.
Close call on the bridge
Police were called early Sunday to the St. Vincent Street Bridge to find a man acting suspiciously. Apparently, the man was having emotional problems, and was brought in under the Mental Health Act for his own safety. He was taken to RVH.
