Masset RCMP responded to a dispute between two women which ended with bloodshed.
On April 8, 2012, just after midnight, two women were arguing on the street in Old Massett, when a knife was pulled and used in the altercation. The victim received a number of serious stab wounds and cuts to her head, face and lower body before witnesses were able to break it up.
A bystander, who tried to break up the altercation also received a knife wound on his forearm. Both victims were taken to the Masset Hospital to receive medical attention and the female was hospitalized.
The female victim suffered injuries that were potentially life threatening, but due to the proficient care of medical staff, police were advised that she would recover from her wounds.
