The Saint John Police Force says a fourth suspect has been arrested in connection with a stabbing that happened in the city more than a week ago.

The force was looking for the suspects following the stabbing, which happened on Princess Street near Water Street around 12:50 a.m. on March 11.

Once on scene, police say they found a 20-year-old man laying on the sidewalk who looked like he had been stabbed.

He was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

After speaking with witnesses, police say they went into a nearby bar and arrested a 19-year-old man for aggravated assault.

He was later released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court on June 13.

At that time, police believed there were at least two other suspects involved in the incident.

Police provided photos and descriptions of the men and asked for information from the public.

On Friday, they said the two men had been identified.

The Saint John Police Major Crime Unit arrested a 24-year-old man for aggravated assault and a 20-year-old man for attempted murder on Thursday, according to a news release.

Both men were scheduled to appear in court on Friday.

In an updated news release Tuesday, police say the fourth suspect, a 20-year-old man, was arrested for aggravated assault.

He was later released from custody on an undertaking with conditions, including that he return to court on June 13.

Police say no further arrested are anticipated at this time. Top Stories
