A man was rushed to hospital with serious, potentially life-threatening injuries on Wednesday night after being stabbed in the community of Dover, Calgary police said.
Officers were called to the scene in the 3900 block of 29 Avenue Southeast at about 9 p.m.
Police said two men got into an altercation, and one of the men allegedly stabbed the other and left the scene.
“Two guys came out of the house over here and chased him down,” neighbour Courtney Hawthorne told Global News. “They started to fight … And I heard one of the garbage bins get knocked over, and then one of the guys said: ‘You’re dead, you’re dead.’”
