1:00a - Man charged after stabbing

A Calgary man has been charged with attempted murder after a woman was repeatedly stabbed Sunday.

Dean Oliver Young, 19, has been charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace.

Police discovered the victim after responding to a 911 hang-up call just before midnight in the 6800 block of Centre Street North.

Police found a 21-year-old woman suffering from multiple stab wounds to her chest and back as well as to her hands.

The unidentified woman was taken to Foothills Hospital, where she is listed in serious but stable condition.

This is the kind of thing that you see on the evening news, or hear about on the radio, or read about in the newspaper. This is the kind of thing that you learn about, quickly think to yourself about how terrible it is, and then continue on with your day. This is the kind of thing that happens in other people's lives - people you'll never meet or know, people who's faces are lost amongst the faceless masses.

This one isn't like that. This one is different. This one has a face.

Imagine my surprise, my shock, my horror, to find out that this story belongs to a friend, to D... to find out that her attacker was her fianc�...!

I visited her at the hospital today... she's doing better than I expected, which is a good thing! I couldn't help but marvel at her strength, her ability to smile through this! By the end of our visit, the painkillers were starting to wear off... a laugh should not cause someone that much agony. I've never wished so much ill on someone I don't know - I want to hurt the man who did this. Badly.

current mood: angry
