Montreal police are investigating after a man was stabbed Saturday night at a movie theatre at the Cavendish mall in Côte Saint-Luc.
Montreal police spokesperson Julien Lévesque said a 911 call reporting the incident was logged at 11:50 p.m.
Witnesses told police that an argument broke out between several men inside the movie theatre.

“He was conscious during his transport to hospital,” Lévesque said, adding that his injuries were not life-threatening.
Five men were intercepted in the mall’s parking lot in connection with the stabbing.
They were taken into police custody for questioning but had been released by 6:30 a.m. on Sunday.
