A 22-year-old man charged with assault with a weapon claimed in court today that it was an accident.
Evan Michael Lambe appeared in provincial court this morning where he told Judge Greg Brown, "I'm charged with stabbing my girlfriend with scissors, but it was an accident, though."
Lambe is charged with assault with a weapon (scissors), assault causing bodily harm, breaching probation and two counts of assaulting a police officer.
He's due back this afternoon for a bail hearing.
The charges are from an incident on Cabot Street Sunday.
RNC officers responded to a report that a female had been stabbed by a male who was known to her.
The victim was treated at hospital and released. Injuries are not apparently life threatening.
