A 31-year-old Salmon Arm man is facing charges of attempted murder after stabbing his co-worker at the Super Self Storage Facility in the Salmon Arm Industrial Park late Friday morning.

Jeremy Daniel Webster of Salmon Arm remains in custody after he is alleged to have stabbed a fellow worker. The men are not employees of Super Self Storage, but were co-workers who were renting a storage unit at the facility.

Webster made a first appearance in court Monday and will appear again Thursday, March 13.

An air ambulance was called in Friday afternoon to the storage facility at 4750 40th Ave. SE to transport a man with stab wounds.

Staff Sgt. Kevin Keane of the Salmon Arm RCMP reports police and ambulance were called to the scene at 11:15 a.m.

A 34-year-old man had been stabbed and because there was no safe site for the helicopter to land at that location, the man was taken by ambulance to the Salmon Arm Airport for transport to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops.

The man’s injuries were described in initial reports as critical, but he is expected to survive, report police.

The male suspect was arrested at the scene.

“Police believe mental health issues are a factor in this incident,” said Keane.

Friday afternoon, RCMP were on the scene interviewing people in the rear yard of the self storage facility and speaking with workers at the BC Hydro building next door.
