Manitoba RCMP are searching for information in a violent attack in Norway House after a boy was stabbed in his bed by an unknown person who RCMP said broke into the home.
Mounties said officers were called to the home in the community around 2:35 a.m. on Sunday, and were told a 12-year-old boy had been stabbed in his bed while he was sleeping.
