Prince Albert RCMP have made a second arrest in connection with a December 2020 stabbing in the community of Sturgeon Lake.

Ashley Badger, 31, was arrested without incident during a traffic stop on Highway 2 north of Prince Albert Thursday afternoon.

She will appear in provincial court on Jan. 18. She faces four charges, including theft of a motor vehicle and breaking and entering to commit an indictable offence.

Badger was one of two people wanted in connection with the incident. The second was Welsey Naytowhow, 39, who police arrested without incident on Dec. 20. Naytowhow faces five charges, includes aggravated assault, uttering death threats, and theft of a motor vehicle.

All charges stem from an incident that occured on Dec. 16 in Sturgeon Lake First Nation. RCMP were called to the scene at around 2 p.m. where they found a 37-year-old man who was allegedly stabbed at a residence in the Sturgeon Lake First Nation.

An investigation revealed that a man had entered the residence and assaulted the victim while a woman waited outside in a car. The man then stole the victim’s vehicle and fled the scene.

STARS Air Ambulance transported the victim to hospital in Saskatoon for serious, but not life-threatening, injuries. The victim was released on Dec. 17.
