OLIVER - A man was left with serious injuries after he was stabbed during a fight south of Oliver last week.

Two men were at a woman’s residence on Highway 97 south of Oliver in the early morning hours of June 3 when they began to fight. The argument led to one man allegedly stabbing and slashing the other, RCMP say in a release.

The woman called RCMP around 1 a.m. as she was driving her friend to the hospital with serious, possibly life-threatening injuries.

Abraham Charleyboy, 32, was arrested and later that morning the weapon was recovered from his residence.

Charleyboy has been charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for dangerous purposes. He remains in custody in Penticton and is scheduled to appear in court today, June 8.
