A 26-year-old man will face court this morning, charged with one count of murder following the death of a man on Saturday, 11 January 2020.

About 1.30am, police responded to reports of a disturbance at a residence on Cartwright Street, Charnwood.

A 27-year-old man with stab wounds was transported to hospital by ACT Ambulance Service Paramedics, however he died a short time later.

Police initiated an extensive search around the North Canberra region for the 26-year-old man, who subsequently handed himself in at City Police Station about 4.30pm on 11 January.

Police would like to thank local media for disseminating information regarding this incident, which we believe assisted in the suspect surrendering to police swiftly and peacefully.
