ORIGINAL

Just before 1:50 p.m. today, Wednesday, October 14, 2020, we received a call regarding a serious assault near the Cash Money on Elm Street downtown. Information provided was that a man had stabbed another man before fleeing the area on foot.

Officers arrived on scene and located a 25 year old man who had sustained serious injuries and required immediate medical attention. The man was transported to hospital by Paramedic Services and remains in critical condition.

The individual responsible for the attack is described as a younger, shorter man with a slim build and black hair. The man was seen wearing a grey hoody and dark pants at the time of the incident. He fled on foot prior to Police arrival.

This is believed to be an isolated incident as the individuals are known to each other. We do not believe that there is any concern to the general Public.

Officers continue to canvas the area and are reviewing video footage in order to get a better description of the man involved.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information related to the individual responsible is asked to call our Criminal Investigation Division at 705-675-9171 extension 2341.
