A man is in hospital after an assault in Hamilton’s east end overnight on Friday, according to police.
Investigators say the brother of the victim attacked him around 1:30 a.m. at a residence near Quigley Road and Angus Road. Officers found the man, who is in his mid-40s, what they believe to be stab wounds.
He was taken to hospital in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.
A 48-year-old Hamilton man, accused of a targeted assault, was arrested. Detectives have not revealed the nature of further charges that are expected to be released later after an investigation is completed.
A police presence will be in the east end neighbourhood for most of Friday morning, investigators say.
