A Chatham-Kent Police Service officer has been recognized for his efforts after a stabbing in Wallaceburg last month.
At the Chatham-Kent Police Services Board meeting on Tuesday, April 20, 2021, Const. Max Bossence received a Board Citation for his life-saving efforts following a 911 call to an apartment building in Wallaceburg.
“As a former paramedic, Max recognized that the victim had sustained a serious stab wound,” police officials said on social media.
“His quick actions to stabilize the man until EMS arrived on scene, helped save the man’s life. Congratulations Max and thank you for keeping our community safe.”
As previously reported, officers responded to the incident early Tuesday morning, March 9, 2021, police officials allege.
Through investigation, police learned that a woman was walking and yelling in the hallway of the complex while in possession of a kitchen knife, police allege.
“Three different men exited their respective apartments as they heard the commotion in the hallway, police officials said in a press release.
“The woman attempted to stab two of the men and made contact with the third man, resulting in the man being stabbed twice. Officers located the woman and she was taken into custody.”
Police officials say a 58-year-old Wallaceburg man sustained life-threatening injuries and was transported to London for medical attention.
The 33-year-old Wallaceburg woman has been charged with three counts of attempted murder and being in possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
She was remanded into custody pending a bail hearing.
