Mounties say they've arrested a man accused of trying to kill a police officer by stabbing him in the neck, bringing a days-long manhunt to an end.

Police had been searching for Tobias Doucette since the incident at a hotel in Bridgewater, N.S., on Monday.

He was wanted on a charge of attempted murder, and was also charged with assault on his common-law partner.

RCMP announced early Sunday that he had been arrested without incident.

Bridgewater police Sgt. Matthew Bennett, who was injured in Monday's incident, is recovering following surgery.

Doucette's common-law partner was treated for minor injuries sustained in the same incident.
