Al­ter­ca­tion down­town leaves woman with stab wounds

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

A woman was taken to hospi­tal with non-life-threat­en­ing in­juries after a down­town stab­bing late Mon­day af­ter­noon.

There was an “al­ter­ca­tion” be­tween two fe­males who were known to each other be­fore the stab­bing oc­curred around 4:30 p.m. out­side of the Hamil­ton City Cen­tre, said Hamil­ton po­lice Staff Sgt. Frank Mis­cione.

One woman suf­fered two stab wounds, he said.

A youth has been ar­rested and charged with as­sault with a weapon, Mis­cione said.

The cor­ner en­trance of the City Cen­tre at James Street North and York Boule­vard was taped off around 5 p.m. Mon­day as po­lice in­ves­ti­gated.

What ap­peared to be blood could be seen on the side­walk on James North as well as out­side of the build­ing’s vestibule.
