Police in Halifax say two men were taken to hospital Saturday morning with non-life-threatening injuries.
According to police, officers were called to Main Street in Dartmouth at about 2:45 a.m. They said the alleged victim, a 23-year-old man, was with friends behind a building when he became involved in a dispute with a man not known to him.
Police said the arguing escalated into a fight and the suspect stabbed the man in the arm before taking off towards the Lakecrest Drive area.
Investigators said the suspect is a heavy-set white man, about 35 to 45-years-old, around five-foot-nine and has a beard.
A few hours after the incident, just before 11 a.m., police were contacted by a 38-year-old man described by them as somehow involved in the incident. Police said that man had suffered injuries, none of them life-threatening, and was transported to hospital.
Police did not elaborate on the second man's connection to the stabbing incident.
They said their investigation was ongoing and no charges had been laid.
