A teenage boy is facing an aggravated assault charge after a stabbing over the long weekend at Lakelse Lake Provincial Park.

RCMP say a man suffered numerous stab wounds to his upper body, during an altercation that happened early Sunday morning at around 12:52, near the cabins on Spruce Trail.

The man remains in hospital in serious but stable condition.

Terrace RCMP say the stabbing was just one incident in what turned out to be an extremely busy holiday weekend for officers in the area.

"Luckily over the weekend, we did have some additional officers, additional constables posted at both the rec sites in Terrace and at Furlong Bay, and we were able to deal with a lot of the issues that were arising as they happened;  we responded to approximately 180 calls over the weekend -- that doesn't include violation tickets that would have been issued for drinking offenses and other type of things," she said.

Evelyn says it's important for adults to talk to their teenage children about obeying the laws regarding alcohol.

She says once police are forced to become involved, it can lead to life-long consequences.
