A man has been charged in connection to a fatal stabbing in Pickering that left one man dead, Durham Regional Police say.
Police were called to a home in the area of Rosebank Road and Sheppard Avenue at approximately 7 p.m. on Friday.
On arrival, officers found a 56-year-old man with multiple stab wounds. He was rushed to a trauma centre where he was pronounced dead.
In a news release Thursday, police said the attack occurred inside a home.
Police said they were able to locate the accused in Toronto shortly after the incident with the help of Toronto police.
A 23-year-old Pickering man has since been charged with second-degree murder and held for bail hearing.
Police would not comment on the relationship between the two.
A postmortem examination is scheduled for tomorrow.
