Man suffers serious injuries after getting stabbed in Carlton and Graham area

  • Print

A violent assault led to a stabbing incident near a downtown patio early Thursday morning.

Around 1 a.m., police were called to the area of Carlton Street and Graham Avenue where Rudy's Eat and Drink is located. The restaurant's manager confirmed today that the stabbing incident happened near Rudy's patio, but said the victim and suspects weren't patrons of the restaurant.

A 19-year-old man was approached by a group of men, one of whom punched the victim. Const. Jason Michalyshen said the victim was bracing for a second punch when he was stabbed in the lower body.

Restaurant staff helped the victim after the suspects fled the scene. The man suffered serious injuries, but is in stable condition, Michalyshen said.

No arrests or charges have been made yet in regards to the incident.

"There's no indication that this is a random attack. Right now we're looking into the possibility that there is something more to this," Michalyshen said. "Whether or not these individuals thought the victim was someone else or whether or not there is more to the story with respect to the relationship between the victim and the suspects, that's something that we're sorting out."

Anyone with more information regarding the matter is asked to contact investigators at 204-986-6668 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
