Two Aurora men were due to be arrested last week in what police describe as a “domestic incident”, which left one of the two men at Sunnybrook Hospital recovering from stab wounds.

The incident took place last Thursday afternoon at a small apartment building on Wells Street North at the corner of Wellington Street East.

Police were called to the scene of a fight at approximately 2 p.m. By the time they arrived, however, it had escalated from a fight to a stabbing.

Speaking to The Auroran shortly after the incident, Inspector Stu Betts confirmed to The Auroran that a 29-year-old man was undergoing surgery at Sunnybrook after being stabbed in the abdomen. The 23-year-old male suspect was apprehended and appeared at the Newmarket Courthouse on Friday morning for a bail hearing.

That afternoon, however, Police confirmed that both men involved in the incident were due to be arrested.

“It is a domestic-related incident so we are not getting into a lot of detail about the people who were involved,” said Sergeant Clint Whitney. “The 23-year-old was arrested and charged, but it looks like both parties are going to be arrested in the incident.

“Both parties had injuries. It was a fight where someone ended up grabbing a knife and stabbing someone else with non-life-threatening injuries.”
The investigation continues.
