A Hamilton man is in hospital with knife wounds after what police believe was a “targeted break in” Thursday morning.

Three men broke into a home on Pearl Street around 5:43 a.m., Const. Debbie McGreal-Dinning told CBC Hamilton. A 30-year-old Hamilton man was cut with a knife in what police believe was a targeted incident.

“It’s not isolated or random,” McGreal-Dinning said. “He suffered some lacerations he was taken to hospital for.”

The man’s injuries are considered non-life threatening.

Police detectives continue to investigate.
