Port Alberni RCMP say one man has been arrested and charged in relation to the fatal stabbing on Oct. 20.

Dylan Hamilton-George, 30, was found and arrested by an RCMP officer conducting patrols on Nov. 13. He has been charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and is being held in custody until his Nov. 15 court appearance.

On Oct. 20, police were called to the 5100 block of Argyle Street for a report of a stabbing, and officers determined the two men involved knew each other.

The victim was brought to the hospital where he died from his injuries.

The suspect fled the scene and police have been seeking his arrest.

A neighbour, Kayls James, told CHEK News on Oct. 21 she heard the argument in the hallway of her building.

“One second there was a bit of yelling, and the next thing someone’s screaming, ‘Call 911, help me!’ And I went over and called 911 and tried to assist the now deceased’s girlfriend,” said James who did place a call to 911.

Friends and acquaintances identified the victim as Johnny Sorensen, who was also known by the nickname Tree.

Chad Louttit, say Sorensen had proven to have a big heart during their more than two-year friendship.

“He was always the guy who would help anybody he could,” said Louttit.
