Man stabbed at Côte-Saint-Luc cinema

A man was stabbed at a movie theater following an altercation Saturday night.

Police say a 44-year-old man got into an argument with a group of five men in their 20's while watching a film at the Cineplex Cinemas Quartier Cavendish.

One of the men stabbed the 44-year-old in the lower body and fled the theater.

He was conscious and in stable condition when transported to hospital.

A K-9 unit was deployed to the scene.

Police found the five men in the parking lot and detained them around 11:50 p.m.

Officials say that it seems that the group of five men may have been making noise during a movie and the situation escalated when they were told to keep it down.

No arrests have been made yet, but the men are being questioned.

The investigation is ongoing.
