Montreal police are investigating after a woman was stabbed to death in the city’s east east Friday morning.

Montreal police spokesperson Sabrina Gauthier said officers responded to a 911 call shortly before 8 a.m. reporting a woman lying on the ground, unconscious, inside an apartment on Sherbrooke Street East near the intersection of Yves-Theriault in Pointe-aux-Trembles.

Officers dispatched to the area, quickly located the victim, a 32-year-old woman, and attempted to revive her.

She was declared dead at the scene.

Gauthier said the woman’s body bore marks of violence caused by a sharp object.

A 42-year-old man was arrested in connection with her death, but police have yet to release any other details.

A command post was being set up in the area and the major crimes division has been tasked with investigating.
