A Prince George man faces a charge of attempted murder in relation to the stabbing of a woman at a 200 block Ruggles St. home on Dec. 27.
Crown prosecution has also approved one count each of aggravated assault and assault with a weapon and four counts of breach of an undertaking or recognizance against Aaron Craig Sutherland, 34.
Called to the scene at 11 a.m., Prince George RCMP members found the 21-year-old woman with a wound to her neck. She was later transported to hospital in Vancouver.
Sutherland was arrested without incident a short time later in the 2100 block of Upland Street.
Sutherland, who has an extensive criminal record for offences committed in Prince George, Quesnel and Williams Lake, was last in the news in January when he failed to return to a halfway house in Kelowna while out on parole. About a month later, he was apprehended in Quesnel.
At the time, police described him as opportunistic and chronic offender with a serious drug addiction and with a history of assaults, property offenses, fleeing police, drug offenses, dangerous driving, failure to comply offenses and one sexual assault conviction.
Sutherland also currently faces a charge of uttering threats from an alleged Nov. 22 incident in Prince George. He has remained in custody since his Dec. 27 arrest .
