Ottawa police are searching for a suspect after a man was stabbed while taking out his garbage on Donald Street Sunday evening.
The 26-year-old victim was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The Ottawa Police Service says the man was approached at approximately 8:15 p.m. while taking out his garbage and stabbed in the lower abdomen, after which the suspect fled.
