Four people were brought to Whitehorse General Hospital on a violent Saturday night.
At 6:19 p.m., Whitehorse RCMP responded to a 911 call of a man who had been severely beaten and stabbed at The Barracks, an apartment complex on Range Road.
The 29-year-old victim was brought to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to a RCMP news release this morning.
Police are still searching for two male suspects involved in the attack.
The weapon, believed to be “sharp-edged, such as a knife,” has yet to be recovered, said Cpl. Natasha Dunmall.
The second incident occurred approximately 10 minutes later.
Police responded to a 911 call of multiple stabbings inside a residence on Prospector Road.
Five victims were located with various degrees of stabbing and slashing injuries. Three of them were brought to the Whitehorse General Hospital.
Following an argument that led to a physical fight, the accused left the residence and returned with what police believe was a hunting knife.
Alcohol was a factor, Dunmall said.
Roxanne McGinty, 32, has been charged with five counts of aggravated assault and one count of failing to comply with a court order.
McGinty remains in custody and will re-appear in territorial court later this week.
Despite the time and proximity of the incidents, the RCMP says they were not related.
Yukon Hospital Corporation spokesperson James Low said he could not comment on the condition of the victims.
