Stabbing & Stolen Vehicles

Criminal Charges

On May 4, 2017, officers from the Midland Police were dispatched to a residence on the east side of Midland for a report of a person being stabbed. Officers attended and learned that a man had been stabbed multiple times by a 27 year old male who was known to him.

The 27 year old man then proceeded to steal a vehicle that was idling near the location of the incident. The stolen vehicle fled the scene at a high rate of speed and still had two male passengers inside. The two males were able to exit the stolen vehicle which continued travelling out of the Midland area.
A short time later, Midland Police were notified by the Southern Georgian Bay OPP detachment that a single motor vehicle collision had occurred on County Road #93. Officers attended and learned that the involved vehicle was the same as the one that had been stolen in Midland.

The driver of the vehicle proceeded to go across the road to a neighbouring residence and while there he proceeded to steal another vehicle. A plain clothes officer was able to stop the man in the stolen vehicle before it had left the area.

The suspect was taken into custody and transported to hospital. The suspect was later released from the hospital and will attend a bail hearing at the Barrie Court of Justice on May 5, 2017. The suspect is in custody and there is no threat to public safety.
