Police are investigating a stabbing after a couple were attacked at home in Westdale on Sunday night.

Investigators say a 19-year-old man and woman were injured in an assault after opening the door to three assailants at a Bowman Street residence just before midnight.

An Etobicoke man suffered a stab wound and was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries while a woman from Hamilton was sprayed with an unknown aerosol irritant. She was treated on scene.
