Investigators said the victim was reportedly involved in a previous altercation at a bar or restaurant at 111 Richmond Street West.

Officers at 52 Division said they also received multiple fight calls to that location.

At the end of the night, police said the victim went to get into an Uber, when words were exchanged with the suspect — which led to the victim being stabbed in the leg.

The victim suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries and was transported to hospital for treatment.
