A man was found stabbed outside a Membertou, N.S., apartment building early Sunday.

Cape Breton Regional Police say the 30-year-old was found at 4 a.m. on Veterans Avenue. Officers arrested a 22-year-old man.

The victim was stabbed twice. He is in serious condition and requires surgery.

Unconfirmed reports say the stabbing happened during a fight that also involved a baseball bat.

Staff Sgt. Mike Kennedy said police are investigating.

"Members from major crime have been called out and they are in the process of interviewing persons that were at the scene to try and determine what had actually taken place," he said.

The 22-year-old is in custody, but has not been charged.
