A wedding turned violent last night in northeast Calgary.

Police say a fight broke out, outside the Marlborough Park Community Association around 11 p.m. MT.

A 31-year-old man was stabbed several times in the face, shoulder and abdomen.

"Surprisingly, the injuries that he had were relatively minor despite the fact that it sounded bad," said Duty Insp. Paul Stacey.

"He was treated at the hospital and released."

Police say witnesses helped officers track down a suspect.

A 47-year-old man is in custody, facing charges of assault causing bodily harm.
