Calgary police say charges have been laid against one person and are pending against another, after a stabbing Monday in the northeast neighbourhood of Abbeydale.

According to a release, officers were called to the Peter Lougheed Centre on March 29 at 6:20 a.m. for reports a man suffering a stab wound had been dropped off at the hospital.

He underwent surgery and is now in stable condition, according to the release.

Police said they were able to determine that the assault happened at a residence in the 1200 block of Abbeydale Drive N.E.

Upon arriving at the location, several witnesses were found, police said. The residence was then contained by police and a search warrant was conducted.

Police said two suspects were identified and they were known to the victim.

According to police, the victim and suspects were involved in an argument, which escalated to an assault.

Audrey Laura Corn, 22, of Calgary, has since been charged with one count of aggravated assault and will appear in court on April 30.

Police said charges are pending against a second suspect.

"The quick action of patrol officers who responded to this incident and immediately located and contained the scene was instrumental in this investigation," said Staff Sgt. Kurt Jacobs of the Calgary Police Service's District 1 general investigations unit.

"It allowed us to efficiently direct our investigative resources, who were able to identify suspects and wrap up this investigation relatively quickly."
