In the midst of the various shootings that have occurred in our city recently, a stabbing in Montreal happened on the morning of Sunday, August 8.

"Around 10:15 a.m. a call was placed to 9-1-1 concerning a person who was injured by a knife, on rue Sainte-Catherine, near rue du Fort, in the Ville-Marie borough," SPVM spokesperson Véronique Comtois confirmed.

According to Montreal police, a conflict escalated between the suspect, a 33-year-old man and the victim, a 65-year-old man, which resulted in the victim being injured "in the upper body with a sharp object."
