A Fort Chipewyan man is facing aggravated assault charges following a stabbing in the rural hamlet.
Fort Chipewyan RCMP responded to a residence during the early morning of November 7, at approximately 1:07 a.m.
The Mounties say they were en-route to the residence and located a male victim with serious, life-threatening injuries.
The victim was transported to Fort McMurray via Medi-Vac and then transported to an Edmonton hospital.
As a result, police have charged 29-year-old Jericho Mercredi-Cardinal with aggravated assault.
Mercredi-Cardinal remains in custody and will be before a judge in Fort McMurray on November 12.
No further information is being released at this time.
