Winnipeg, April 19, 2024 - Thursday shortly after noon, the Winnipeg Police responded to a stabbing call from the first block of Jorowski Cove.


Police found a 21-year-old male victim suffering from upper body injuries sustained from the stabbing. Officers administered emergency medical care, including the application of chest seals, before the victim was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. His condition later stabilized.


According to the Major Crimes Unit, it was revealed that the suspect and the victim, who were acquainted prior to the incident, were together in a residence. A verbal altercation between the two escalated dramatically when the suspect brandished a machete, striking the victim multiple times and inflicting severe injuries.


The suspect, an adult male, fled the scene on foot before law enforcement arrived. However, police located and arrested the suspect at his residence around 40 minutes later, without any further incident. A machete, believed to be the weapon used in the assault, was recovered and seized as evidence.


Phoenix Kalen Kawakami, a 19-year-old resident of Winnipeg, now faces multiple charges including aggravated assault, possession of a weapon, failure to comply with a condition of release order, and breach of recognizance. He has been remanded in custody pending further legal proceedings.
