Peel police have arrested a 17-year-old girl for allegedly stabbing an 18-year-old man on New Year's Eve.

Police found the victim in the Seneca Avenue and Lakeshore Road East area in Mississauga just before 6:00 a.m.

The 18-year-old was suffering from a stab wound and was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
