The altercation occurred around 1:55 a.m. and was witnessed by patrolling police officers, who saw two men fighting on the street near the 300 block of Flora. One of the males fled on foot and was later apprehended on Selkirk Avenue. The male who remained at the scene was treated by paramedics for stab wounds.
