A Manitoba woman is facing multiple charges after police allege she stabbed her boyfriend and set his house on fire.

RCMP said the incident happened Friday in Lynn Lake, a remote community more than 1,000 kilometres north of Winnipeg.

Police said in a news release that the man fled to call police after he was stabbed.

“Upon returning to the home, he discovered that a fire had been set inside the home,” according to police.

The man suffered minor injuries from the stabbing, police said.

Police have charged a woman, 36, with assault with a weapon, mischief causing danger to life, arson to property and two counts of failing to comply with an undertaking.
