A Campbell River man was taken to hospital following an altercation with someone armed with a knife Thursday evening.

Police were called to an incident involving a man and a woman at around 7:30 p.m. in the 600-block of 9th Avenue.

The pair know each other and both of them are also known to police.

After being taken to the hospital, the man was treated for non-life threatening injuries. He remains in custody.

Police are still looking to speak to the woman, who left the scene before officers arrived.
