On March 17 around 4 a.m., Montreal police received a 911 call about a man who was stabbed inside an apartment in Ahuntsic on rue Fleury Est near rue Saint-Hubert.

"From the first testimony that we have, it seems like a conflict began between two persons inside the apartment. The suspect then took a sharp object and then stabbed the victim at least one time on his upper body," SPVM spokesperson Manuel Couture told MTL Blog. Police are considering this incident "armed assault."

The victim, a 24-year-old man, was transported to the hospital upon police arrival. "He was conscious during his transport," Couture said.

When police arrived at the scene, the suspect, also a 24-year-old man, was still there. He was arrested, according to police.

Couture said that the suspect "has been transported to the detention centre in order to be questioned by the investigators."

A crime scene was "established" early Thursday morning, but police said it shouldn't cause any impact on traffic.
