A 59-year-old man was stabbed with two common kitchen steak knives this evening around 5:30pm after he refused to give another man some cigarettes.

The victim was approached outside of 920 Ouellette where a man approached him and demanded cigarettes. The man went inside and returned with two knives and attacked the victim.

The victim tried to defend himself and received a two-inch gash to his right hand, the victim then managed to disarm the suspect and then punched the suspect a number of times in the face before police arrived.

When police arrived they located the suspect in the lobby of the apartment building at 920 Ouellette Avenue and arrested him without incident.

Police say that the victim received only the non life threatening injury to his hand and the suspect received a bloody mouth. The knives were recovered by the officers.

Charges of assault with a weapon are pending.
