A man has been sentenced to time served and two years of probation for a stabbing near Mill Lake Park in Abbotsford a year ago.
Tristan Belhumeur, 22, was sentenced Aug. 29 in Abbotsford provincial court after previously pleading guilty to aggravated assault and breaching a release order.
Two counts of assault with a weapon and a second breach charge from that same incident were stayed.
His sentence also included a charge of assault with a weapon from a separate incident on June 11, 2022.
Belhumeur was charged shortly after the stabbing incident on Aug. 26, 2022. On that day just after 4 p.m., police were called to the 2300 block of Ware Street.
Officers found a 20-year-old man who had been stabbed. Citizens in the area had provided emergency medical care until first responders arrived.
The victim had injuries that were not life-threatening, and he was taken to hospital.
Belhumeur left before police arrived, and more than 20 officers conducted a search, including with the assistance of witnesses and the Lower Mainland Police Dog Service.
He was located at 5:14 p.m. in the area of Highway 11 and Bateman Road and was arrested without incident.
He remained in custody from the time of his arrest until sentencing.
