A man has been arrested after a young woman was stabbed on a street in Montreal’s West Island late Tuesday.
Montreal police (SPVM) responded to the incident on the corner of Michel-Jasmin and Orly avenues in Dorval shortly before midnight.
A short while later, the 28-year-old man, whom police believe to be the attacker, was arrested. He will now be questioned in custody by SPVM investigators.
Police are also questioning one woman, said to be a witness to the incident.
The 18-year-old victim has been taken to hospital, where she is being treated for stab wounds sustained to her upper body. She is expected to make a recovery.
A security perimeter encircling the site of the attack was lifted early Wednesday.
