Abbotsford man charged in relation to stabbing on Elgon Court

Incident took place Thursday night, apparently involving a fight between two roommates

Abbotsford Police were called to investigate a stabbing at an Elgon Court home on Thursday evening.

A 31-year-old Abbotsford man has been charged with aggravated assault following a stabbing that occurred on Thursday night.

Police were called to a home on Elgon Court at about 10:45 p.m. after reports that a man had been stabbed during an argument with his roommate.

The suspect had run off, and the victim, 30, was discovered to be suffering non-life-threatening wounds to his torso and arm.

The victim was taken to hospital, and police found the suspect not far from the scene about 15 minutes later.

The home was behind police tape for much of Friday as investigators gathered evidence.

Sean Garrett Duffy has now been charged in relation to the incident.

Duffy is also still before the courts in relation to a crash that took place on Feb. 1, in which a 19-year-old woman was struck and pinned by a pickup truck in the 30700 block of Cardinal Avenue – near Highstreet mall.

The driver had first hit a vehicle in the Fraser Valley Auto Mall and was speeding away before he struck the young woman, who was on the sidewalk at the time.

Police at the time said they believed the driver had become unconscious before veering off the road.

Emergency crews and several local citizens worked to free the teen from beneath the vehicle.

She was taken to hospital by air ambulance, and survived her injuries.

Duffy was charged with impaired driving causing bodily harm, dangerous driving causing bodily harm and failure to stop at an accident.

He also faces charged in McLure, B.C. – north of Kamloops – for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and failing to stop at an accident in July 2014.
