Montreal police are investigating after a man was stabbed in a park in Saint-Michel late Monday.

Const. Véronique Comtois said that a 911 call was placed at about 11:40 p.m., alerting officers to the situation.

When they arrived at a park near François-Perrault Street adjacent to the Saint-Michel metro station, they found an 18-year-old male who had sustained injuries to his upper body. He was accompanied by another person, whose age police did not disclose to Global News.
