Mounties say they’ve arrested a man accused of trying to kill a police officer by stabbing him in the neck, bringing a days-long manhunt to an end.
Police had been searching for Tobias Doucette since the incident at a hotel in Bridgewater, N.S., on Monday.
He was wanted on a charge of attempted murder, and was also charged with assault on his common-law partner.
RCMP announced early Sunday that he had been arrested without incident.
Bridgewater police Sgt. Matthew Bennett, who was injured in Monday’s incident, is recovering following surgery.
Doucette’s common-law partner was treated for minor injuries sustained in the same incident.
RCMP have taken Doucette into custody without incident. <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Lunenburg?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#Lunenburg</a> <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Bridgewater?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#Bridgewater</a> <a href=”https://twitter.com/policenews?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>@policenews</a>
