Police officers and cadets guard the scene of the stabbing in the 400 block of Manitoba Avenue Saturday afternoon.

Winnipeg police have made an arrest in a deadly North End stabbing.

Michael Flett, 30, died last Saturday after being attacked outside a home in the 400 block of Manitoba Avenue. Flett’s mother previously told the Free Press her son was trying to protect somebody.

"He was a hero. He tried to save his friend," she said, choking back tears and unable to continue the interview.

Police announced today they charged 18-year-old Michael Roulette with second-degree murder and two counts of assault with a weapon. He has been detained in custody.

Police say the investigation is ongoing and haven’t ruled out further arrests. Anyone who has any information regarding this incident is asked to contact investigators at (204) 986-6508.
