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.
