A Man Was Attacked In Montreal Monday Night After Going To Complete An Online Transaction

Montreal police say a 39-year-old man was attacked after showing up to carry out a transaction that had been arranged online. SPVM spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant reports that authorities received a 9-1-1 call at around 9:00 p.m. on the evening of Monday, January 31 about the incident at the corner of avenues Émilie-Legault and Jean Desprez in the borough of Anjou.

According to information from the victim and witnesses, two suspects approached the man and injured his upper body with a bladed weapon before fleeing on foot. As of 11:45 p.m. Monday, Brabant said it was unclear which direction the suspects went.

The 39-year-old was brought to the hospital with what the spokesperson suggested were non-life-threatening injuries.

Police set up an investigation perimeter but hadn't made any arrests as of Monday night.
