A 23-year-old accused of stabbing another man a dozen times is out on bail.

Bradley James Perkins was freed on $1,000 recognizance without having to post either cash or a surety.

He’s charged with aggravated assault in the stabbing of Patrick Kennelly, 19, of Campbell River. Perkins is also facing a charge of improper storage of a firearm.

According to RCMP, Kennelly was at a birthday party with friends at a campsite beside Echo Lake when he became involved in a confrontation in the early morning hours last Sunday.

He was stabbed 12 times in the torso and was rushed to Campbell River hospital by friends.

Kennelly was later airlifted to Victoria General Hospital where he underwent surgery and is presently recovering. His Facebook site contains dozens of messages from friends wishing him a speedy recovery.

During their investigation, Mounties obtained a search warrant for 4700 Argonaut Rd., where officers found a marijuana grow operation with 40 plants.

Perkins was later arrested and charged.

He’s now out on bail with conditions that he cannot contact Kennelly and several others.

He was also ordered to abstain from alcohol and to not carry or possess any weapons.

Perkins returns to court on May 16.
