MONTREAL - Police were searching for a suspect seen fleeing the scene of a stabbing in Verdun Monday, after one man had his throat slashed and another man was stabbed in the back.
Police responded to 911 calls about 1:15 p.m. and one victim was found at the corner of Rielle and Wellington Sts.The other victim was found stabbed in the back at the corner of Verdun and Gordon Sts.
Both victims appear to be in their 20s, he said. They have not been identified.
Montreal police Constable Olivier Lapointe said both victims were rushed to hospital and were thought to be in critical condition. The suspect was seen fleeing on foot on Gordon, he added. Police have set up a large security perimeter in the area to look for the suspect, he said.
One woman who works in an insurance office in the neighbourhood said the area can be scary.
“I was always afraid. It’s not a safe corner,” said Melissa, who would give only her first name.
A young man, who also did not want to be named, said: “It’s not surprising. It’s more uncommon in the daytime.”
More details to come.
