Montreal police are investigating after a fight in Montreal’s Plateau borough lead to the stabbings of two men.

Officers received a 911 call at 2:45 a.m. Monday about the brawl, inside a home on Jeanne-Mance Street, near Sherbrooke Street.

A few minutes later, a second 911 call was placed to say that at least one man had been stabbed. 

“There was a fight and two men were hurt by a sharp object,” said Montreal police spokesperson Véronique Comtois. "One of the victims fled from the scene."

A 47-year-old man was transported to hospital with serious injuries. His condition has since stabilized.

A second victim suffered minor injuries and did not go to the hospital.

Comtois says two suspects, aged 23 and 24, were arrested and are expected to meet with investigators later in the day Monday.

A perimeter was established in the area and officers, as well as forensics and the K9 unit, are on the scene to determine the circumstances leading up to the incident.
