A 26-year-old man is in critical condition in hospital after being stabbed at a bus stop on Main Street and Logan Avenue.

Winnipeg police say two men were at the bus stop at around 3:30 p.m. Saturday when they got into an argument.

"Looks like they were waiting or they were sitting at a bus stop near Main and Logan. They started to argue, they got into a physical fight," Const. Jason Michalyshen told CBC News on Sunday.

"One of the males armed himself with a knife, stabbing the other male."

The victim was rushed to hospital in critical condition.

Michalyshen said the accused hopped on a transit bus, which was eventually stopped by police.

The 24-year-old man has been charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon.
