A 48-year-old Montreal man was sent to hospital after suffering stab wounds to the upper body.
Montreal police received a 911 call at 12:45 p.m. Tuesday about the alleged assault on d’Arrass Street near Milly Street in the city’s Saint-Leonard borough.
“According to the first information we received, it seems to be a domestic violence conflict that degenerated,” said Caroline Chèvrefils, a Montreal police spokesperson.
“The woman stabbed her partner with a sharp object.”
The victim was transported to hospital, but officials say his life is not in danger.
The suspect, a 30-year-old woman, was arrested and is expected to meet with investigators later in the day.
There is currently a perimeter in place around the scene.
