A Chemainus man is in custody on aggravated assault charges after a woman was stabbed in the leg.

Jason Conrad, 31, has been charged with two counts of assault with a weapon and one count of aggravated assault — and is also facing drug-related charges — in connection with the Sept. 25 incident.

North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP were called the scene of the stabbing just after 2 p.m. on Sunday.

They arrived at a residence on Island View Close in Chemainus to find a woman in her 50s in the backyard with a stab wound on her lower leg.

While paramedics attended to the injured woman, who was with her husband and daughter, police were advised that the family was at the home — where one of them had been living — to retrieve some personal belongings from the residence.

“A local witness reported the suspect and resident of the home was seen fleeing the scene prior to police arriving,” Const. Markus Lueder said.

Police tracked the suspect’s vehicle to a relative’s residence in Duncan, and arrested Conrad without incident.

“Conrad is well known to police,” Lueder said, adding Conrad is being held in custody while he waits for the outcome of a bail hearing.

The injured woman, meanwhile, is recovering from the stab wound after undergoing surgery for the injury.
