The London Police Service (LPS) has laid charges following an investigation in the city's northwest end on Thursday.

Officers responded to the area of Whetherfield Street and Beaverbrook Avenue around 9 a.m. after a 911 call.

A 52-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman were injured and taken to hospital.

Police say the man remains in hospital in life-threatening condition while the woman has since been released.

A neighbour described seeing an older woman covered in blood and a younger woman running screaming from a home around the time of the incident.

Following an investigation, a 24-year-old London man has been charged with attempted murder and assault with a weapon.

Officials say the suspect and victims are known to each other.

The accused made a court appearance Friday and was remanded in custody pending his next court date on Feb. 8.

Court documents identify the 24-year-old as Mohammed Hazim.
