An employee of a local business had to be airlifted to Edmonton by Stars Air Ambulance in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
At about 2:50 a.m. July 20th, Lloydminster RCMP were called out to an incident at a business near 75th Avenue.
Police say a man whom they believed to be armed, had barricaded himself on the premises located in the 7400 block of 34th Street.
Officers found that an employee at the business had been stabbed by the suspect. Police and witnesses provided life saving care to the employee, who was taken to hospital with serious injuries, according to police.
Members from the Lloydminster RCMP, Lloydminster RCMP Police Dog Services, Kitscoty RCMP, Onion Lake RCMP and Maidstone RCMP were able to enter the business and speak with the barricaded suspect before he surrendered and was taken into custody.
Charges are pending against the 25-year-old male suspect.
The investigation is ongoing, and police will provide further details at a later point.
There are no additional safety concerns for the public in relation to this event.
