Montreal police are investigating after a 52-year-old man was stabbed to death inside an apartment on Paxton Street, near Guy and Notre-Dame streets, in Little Burgundy.

Police spokesperson Raphaël Bergeron said it happened at around 9:30 p.m. on Monday.

Bergeron said it started out as an argument between a man and a woman.

The argument escalated and became physical.

“That’s when the woman stabbed the man in the upper body,” Bergeron said.

Paramedics tried in vain to resuscitate the victim and he was declared dead at the scene.
