The man accused of stabbing two local men at a downtown Chilliwack pub on Sept. 29 turned himself in to police on Thursday.
Dustin Russell, 20, of Chilliwack, faces three counts in connection with the incident that saw Adam Teskey and Jake Barstad stabbed in a supposed fight over a game of pool at District Public House.
One man was arrested at the scene but later released, and Mounties were looking for a second man.
Russell is charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm.
Both Teskey and Barstad have since been released from hospital and are recovering.
"This is a great conclusion to the investigation by the Serious Crime Section," said RCMP spokesperson Const. Cynthia Kershaw in a press release Friday. "Investigators are thankful the alleged suspect did the right thing by turning himself in."
Russell has been released from custody and his next court appearance is set for Oct. 22.
