One of the three men wanted for his role in a stabbing in the small community of Blind Bay in the Shuswap has turned himself into police.

Terrance Alan Jones showed up at the Salmon Arm RCMP detachment Sept. 23, according to an RCMP media release, and was arrested on an outstanding warrant.

A 30-year-old man bleeding from stab wounds appeared at the doorstep of a home on Forest Drive in Blind Bay on Aug. 16. He was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. RCMP said at the time the attack was targeted and happened at a nearby car wash.

Jones, Alexander Vittal Boucher and Jordy Kyle Moyan have all been charged with attempted murder, assault with a weapon, aggravated assault and using a firearm to commit robbery, according to court documents.

Jones has also been charged with pointing a firearm, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose and using a firearm to commit an indictable offence. He is in custody and is scheduled to appear in court today, Sept. 29.

Boucher, 36, was arrested Sept 18 in a Coldstream park after a foot chase when he was spotted by an off-duty officer. He remains in custody pending an appearance in court on a future date.

A heavily armed RCMP emergency response team arrested Moyan, 33, of Kelowna in Chase. Moyan appeared in court earlier this month and remains in custody.

RCMP said the search, which spanned over a month, involved several RCMP jurisdictions across the Shuswap and North Okanagan.

“We greatly appreciate any and all tips submitted by community members who contacted their local RCMP detachment or Crime Stoppers,” B.C. Southeast District RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey said in the release.
