Montreal police were called to the Plateau-Mont-Royal borough on Sunday morning for two incidents involving weapons.

In the first call, police attended the intersection of Papineau and Mont-Royal streets around 3:30 a.m. Sunday on a report of a conflict that left one person injured.

A 33-year-old man was taken to hospital after he suffered a stab wound to the upper body during a brawl involving several people. His condition was not considered to be life-threatening.

Police say no one was arrested as everyone left the scene when authorities arrived. The investigation is ongoing.
