EDMONTON –Attempted murder charges have been laid after police went to an Edmonton apartment building on Saturday and say they found two men, covered in blood, getting off the elevator.

Police took them into custody and officers quickly attended a suite in the building, where they found a 34-year-old man on the floor with multiple stab wounds and other injuries.

He remained in critical condition on Sunday.
