LETHBRIDGE - 30-year-old William Fick, charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon in connection with a stabbing last December at an intersection, pleaded not guilty in Lethbridge Provincial Court Thursday (Mar. 14).

On Dec. 10, 2018, Lethbridge Police responded to a report of a stabbing just after 12 p.m. in the roadway at the intersection of 3 Ave. and 12 St. S.

Police say that a 26-year-old man and a 30-year-old man had been in an altercation earlier in the day and had left the scene in separate vehicles. A second incident erupted when both vehicles stopped at the same red light.

Police allege that the 26-year-old got out of his vehicle and smashed the window of the other vehicle with a snow brush and tried to hit a 27-year-old woman in it.

The 30-year-old man in the second vehicle intervened, and allegedly stabbed the 26-year-old several times, leaving him on the road before he and the female fled.

The man who was stabbed was taken to Chinook Regional Hospital.

Fick will be back in court March 22 for either a pre-trial conference and/or to set a trial date.
