Hamilton police found a stabbing suspect with a knife still in his hands in the lower city Monday night.

Around 8:30 p.m., police were called to a home on Century Street near Wilson and Wentworth for a reported stabbing.

Police, fire and ambulance officials got there and found a man with “significant injuries,” police say.

Earlier, two men that knew each other got into a shouting match. Things escalated when one of the men walked out of the home and was followed by the other with a knife in his hand, police say.

But the man with the knife returned to the home a little while later with a stab wound himself, police say. The 42-year-old man was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The suspect was found a short time later on the corner of Cannon Street and Wellington Street with a knife still in his hands, police say.

The 51-year-old Hamilton man was arrested without incident and held for a bail hearing. He has been charged with aggravated assault and breach of probation.
