Teen facing charges after stabbing, break-in

A 19-year-old man is facing charges including aggravated assault after a 20-year-old man was stabbed in a Bells Corners-area home Tuesday evening and then a nearby homeowner was threatened with a knife.

Patrol officers first responded to a stabbing at a home on Ellery Crescent near Robertson and Lynhar roads at 6:05 p.m. A 20-year-old man was found with injuries that were described as critical but not life-threatening. The suspect fled.

Officers then responded to the report of a possible break and enter on Stinson Avenue and heard that a suspect had entered the home, brandishing a knife, then fled with some of the homeowner’s belongings.

With the help of a sniffer dog, officers quickly tracked down a suspect and made an arrest without incident. West-end detectives took on the case.

Acting Insp. Francois D’Aoust hailed the teamwork involved in the case, saying he was lucky to work with the woman and men who patrol a city of more than 2,700 square kilometres.

“Tonight has been a true example of how Patrol, Comms, K9, Forensic Ident & investigators work together to solve crime & keep our city safe,” he tweeted Tuesday.

Soren James Veale is charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, possession of a dangerous weapon, breaking and entering with intent, attempted breaking and entering, unlawfully being in a dwelling house and two counts of loitering at night.

He was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning.
