A Vancouver man is scheduled to appear in court Monday after being charged in a stabbing melee that left seven people injured — six of whom were rushed to hospital with significant injuries — in the city’s usually quiet West End.

Jerome Bonneric is facing a dozen charges related to Thursday’s attack inside an apartment building on 1200 Barclay Street, including four counts of aggravated assault and one count of assaulting a police officer.

An ex-colleague of Bonneric’s confirmed he formally worked at Port Coquitlam’s Les Croissants d'Olivier.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, one man who works at a North Vancouver bakery where the 33-year-old frequently made deliveries described him as a “really friendly guy” who gave off a bit of a weird vibe.

A Facebook profile apparently belonging to the suspect states his hometown is Paris, France, where he worked as a real estate consultant before moving to Vancouver’s West End.

Vancouver police Sgt. Randy Fincham said it appears Bonneric was staying with a friend who lives inside the building where the attack took place.

Victims of the attack ranged in age from 20s to 60s and lived on different floors of the building. Fincham said Bonneric is not known to police.
