Saskatoon police are investigating a stabbing that left a male victim with life-threatening injuries Friday evening.

Just after 5:30 p.m., officers received a report that a person had been stabbed. They found the victim in the 1400 block of 20th Street West in the Pleasant Hill neighbourhood.

The roadway was blocked off to traffic for just under five hours between Avenue N South and Avenue P South. The restrictions have since been lifted.
