Rankin Inlet RCMP arrested a 39-year-old man following the stabbing of an adult woman Nov. 10.

Earlier in the day, a woman had been brought to hospital with injuries that RCMP said were “not life-threatening.”

The woman has since been released from the health centre.

Members of the Rankin Inlet RCMP later arrested the man at a residence, police said. He was to have appeared at a bail hearing later, in the evening of Nov. 11.
