An Oshawa man police say suffers from mental health issues was arrested after stabbing two people in an unprovoked attack.
On Sunday, Jan. 27 at approximately 6 p.m., officers were called to an apartment building on Simcoe Street North in Oshawa regarding a double stabbing incident.
A 29-year-old male, who lives in the same building, attended the apartment of a 22-year-old female and her 28-year-old male friend.
According to police, without provocation, the accused stabbed the woman and when her friend intervened, he was stabbed multiple times.

The 29-year-old man was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and assault with a weapon; break and enter; possession of a weapon for committing a criminal offence and carrying a concealed weapon. He was held for a bail hearing.
