A 22-year-old man is facing charges including attempted murder after someone was stabbed during a fight involving a group of people outside a Bedford strip mall.

The fight began just before midnight near the Dooly’s on the Bedford Highway. Police say during the fisticuffs, one person was stabbed.

Const. Pierre Bourdages of Halifax Regional Police says a 29-year-old man was taken to the QEII hospital and is listed in stable condition with injuries that aren’t believed to be life-threatening.

Bourdages says the man was the only one injured during the fight.

The 22-year-old from Bedford was arrested at the scene and is also charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon for dangerous purposes and three counts of breach of conditions.

Police say the incident isn’t random. The man is due in court on Friday.
