According to the SPVM, the victim is refusing to speak to the police about the assault.

"There's no update in the investigation because the victim doesn't want to cooperate with the police, so it's hard to have information," Chèvrefils said.

That makes "it hard for the investigators to understand what happened."

The weapon in question was simply referred to as a "sharp object."

When MTL Blog spoke with the SPVM around 9 a.m., there were no more updates to be given about the event.

The investigation is ongoing.
