Saint John Police are investigating after a stabbing incident on Bonita Avenue.

Police were called to a dispute involving two males from two separate apartments who were apparently fighting in the hallway.

Officers spoke with one of the men and although the 19 year old male had cuts on his hands he refused medical attention.

About 2 hours later police were called back to the same apartment, this time they found the door kicked in and the 19 year old man was suffering non-life threatening stab wounds to his hip.

A 17 year old suspect was picked up a short time later and will be making a court appearance to face charges of assault, mischief and probation violation.
