Two people were injured in what Calgary police are calling a “serious assault” on Tuesday morning.

At about 10 a.m., police were called to the Sheldon Chumir Centre at 1213 4 St.S.W. after a man showed up at the urgent care centre in medical distress.

Shortly after, a woman also came to the centre with serious injuries police believe are related to the same incident.

The man was taken to hospital in serious condition. The woman remains in stable condition, police said.

Police said the two victims and the attacker are likely known to each other.

No one had been arrested as of 2:45 p.m., and police were working on coming up with a suspect description, finding witnesses and gaining access to any CCTV video that may be available.
