The SPVM Says A Man Found Injured In The McGill Ghetto Fell Down In An Accident (UPDATED)

At around 5 a.m. on Tuesday morning, the SPVM received a call about an injured man in an apartment building on rue Hutchinson near avenue des Pins in Montreal's Plateau-Mont-Royal borough.

UPDATE: While police initially suspected criminal activity, SPVM spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant reported Wednesday that the injured individual fell down in an accident. Brabant said police ended the investigation after speaking with the man and another individual who officers had initially identified as a suspect. The man bumped his head in his fall but is now "doing okay," according to Brabant.

EARLIER: SPVM spokesperson Véronique Comtois told MTL Blog Tuesday that officers found the man with "violent marks on the upper body." Emergency responders transported him to the hospital.

Comtois said "multiple elements" pointed to this being a "criminal event."

Police arrested a suspect who is set to meet with investigators.
