Two Peterborough men are facing multiple charges for stabbing a man during an attempt to steal his e-bike early Saturday morning (May 25).

At around 2:40 a.m., Peterborough police were called to the Lake Street and George Street area in downtown Peterborough by emergency medical services, who were treating a 52-year-old man who had been stabbed. After arriving at the scene, officers learned two men had attempted to steal the victim’s e-bike.

Officers began tracking the two suspects using a police service dog when police received a second call about two men matching the description given to police who were seen in the George Street and Sherbrooke Street area. Officers arrived in the area, located the two suspects on Charlotte Street, and took them into custody without incident. During a search of the suspects after their arrest, officers seized two knives.
