Bagan was one of four men arrested May 31 in connection with the stabbing, and remains in custody, according to court records. Bagan appears to be the only suspect charged so far, and has not been found guilty of the charge. However, if convicted, he faces up to 14 years in prison.

Police conducted a sweeping investigation in the Mathews Park neighbourhood late Tuesday afternoon after the 40-year-old man, who has not been identified, walked into the hospital with several stab wounds. He was last listed in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries.

In an earlier statement, RCMP said an investigation led officers to a home in the 8900 block of 87 Avenue, where it's believed the man was stabbed. A 45-year-old man was arrested outside the home.

Officers then moved onto a second home in the 8200 block of 87 Street where a 22-year-old man was arrested. While at the scene, officers saw a vehicle travelling down 87 Avenue with two more suspects inside. Two 24-year-old men were arrested and taken into custody following a traffic stop.

Of the four arrests, one man was released, while two others were held for investigation. Bagan had his first court appearance Wednesday.
