PG RCMP use taser on 11 year-old boy after stabbing

A 11 year-old boy has been arrested following a stabbing incident in Prince George.

At approximately 5:30 p.m., on Thursday April 7, the Prince George RCMP received a 911 call about a stabbing at a home.

When the RCMP arrived on the scene, they confirmed that a 37 year-old male had been allegedly stabbed by an 11 year-old male and the victim was en-route to the hospital.

The RCMP then started to search for the suspect, the 11 year-old boy, who was located at a nearby neighbouring property.

The RCMP tried to get the boy out of the home and when he emerged from the home a conducted energy weapon was deployed by a member of the RCMP. The boy was then taken into custody and transported to the hospital.

The victim of the stabbing remains in hospital in good condition with non-life threatening injuries.

The RCMP have not released any further details about the incident at this time. Members from the West Vancouver Police Department have taken over the investigation into the incident.
