A 26-year-old man is expected to recover after an attack with what Montreal police spokesperson Caroline Chèvrefils described as a "sharp object" on the evening of Saturday, June 4.

Authorities received a 911 call about an injured individual near the intersection of rue Raymond and rue Galarneau in the borough of LaSalle at around 9:30 p.m.

Chèvrefils said officers found the 26-year-old victim with an upper-body injury. He was transported to the hospital.

According to preliminary information gathered by police, the 26-year-old was on rue Raymond when "for an unknown reason" an assailant attacked him with the sharp object. The suspect then fled the scene.
