Montreal police spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant said investigators are expected to meet with the victim sometime Saturday morning.
Brabant said it appears the assault stemmed from a family conflict that escalated.
“There was a conflict between a man and a woman, and the victim intervened,” he said, adding officers were looking for the suspect.
“The investigation is moving forward,” he said.
