A young man who was stabbed behind an Ottawa Street bar last night has been charged by Windsor Police.
Around 1:50am, the 20 year old stabbing victim was behind a bar in the 1400 block of Ottawa Street where he brandished a knife and threatened a 30 year old male with it. The 30 year old male pushed the 20 year old backwards while he was still holding the weapon and the 20 year old then punched the 30 year old in the face knocking him to the ground.
While on the ground, the 30 year old was further kicked by the 20 year old. The 20 year old then assaulted a third man, a 24 year old acquaintance of the 30 year old, by punching him in the face as well. The 24 year old got into his car and drove out of the parking lot where a fourth person became involved in the incident. The fourth person, a 22 year old male in the parking lot, was knocked to the ground.
The car was later located in an alley and seized for examination by Windsor Police.
Authorities are not sure exactly how the 20 year old received a stab wound and the four people involved in the incident are not cooperating with Windsor Police.
The 30 year old was transported to Hotel Dieu Hospital by ambulance suffering from cuts and abrasions. His injuries were non-life-threatening and he was treated and released.
The 22 year old male went to Hotel Dieu Hospital on his own. His injuries are not considered to be life threatening. The 22 year old suffered road rash to his left forearm and both elbows. He was also treated and released.
