Halifax Regional Police say just before 1:30 a.m., officers received a call that a man was being beaten up by three others in a parking lot on Plateau Crescent.

About 10 minutes later, a call was received that a 20-year-old man in the 10-20 block of Braeside Lane had been stabbed. He was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
