Montreal Police Investigate 2 Stabbings Downtown

The Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) is investigating two separate stabbings that took place downtown between Friday night and Saturday morning.

24-Year-Old Woman Stabbed In A Tunnel

SPVM media relations officer Véronique Comtois confirmed that police got a 911 call at around 11:59 p.m. on August 13 about a 24-year-old woman who had been stabbed in a Shaughnessy Village tunnel on rue Saint-Marc near rue Baile.

She had injuries to her upper and lower body and was transported to the hospital where there was no danger to her life, Comtois said.

"According to initial information, the woman was walking along rue Saint-Marc when she met the suspect. For a reason still unknown, the suspect attacked the woman with a sharp object before fleeing," said Comtois.

Comtois said the scene was secured and investigators analyzed it using forensic identification technicians in addition to searching the area with a dog handler "to better understand the causes and circumstances of this event."

38-Year-Old Man Stabbed In A Park Altercation

The second incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. on August 14 when a call was placed to 911 about a 38-year-old man who had been stabbed near rue Berri and boulevard de Maisonneuve Est in Ville-Marie.

The victim, who had been stabbed in the upper body, was injured during an altercation with a suspect near Émilie-Gamelin Park, Comtois said.

He was transported to the hospital, she said, and the SPVM has confirmed that he is expected to survive.

An investigation is underway.
