A 50-year-old man is facing charges following a domestic dispute that ended with his 22-year-old son stabbed in the back.
Police were called to assist B.C. Ambulance Service crews around 8 p.m. Thursday, after a stabbing was reported at a home in the 17300-block of 3 Avenue.
Police say alcohol likely fueled the dispute.
