Overnight stabbing and sexual assault in Hess Village
A man was stabbed and a woman was sexually assaulted in two separate incidents in Hess Village on Saturday during what police describe as a “very busy night.”
Police were called to the the area around 1:30 a.m Sunday after reports of a stabbing. A 27-year-old man was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, Staff Sgt. Mike Spencer said.
Division 1 detectives are investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call 905-546-3817.
Around the same time, a woman victim was sexually assaulted in the area in a separate incident.
Police do not believe it was a stranger attack, Spencer said, and the suspect may be known to the victim.
There is no danger to the public at this point, Spencer said.
