Windsor Police have identified the man they believe is responsible for a stabbing in front of the Salvation Army in Downtown Windsor last night.

Approximately 5:15pm, Police received a 911 call in regards to a stabbing in the 300 block of Church in front of the Salvation Army.

Officers arriving at the scene observed a blood trail leading from the roadway into the Salvation Army and police discovered a 28 year old male laying on his back bleeding profusely from the right side of his face and neck in the lobby. Staff at the Salvation Army were attending to the male applying pressure to his wounds.

The victim suffered two stab wounds to his neck and face that required several sutures to close. He was taken to hospital by EMS. His injuries are considered to be non life threatening.

Investigators determined that the victim was out front of The Salvation Army when his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend showed up with a dog. The two males were involved in a verbal confrontation and appeared prepared to engage in a fight. The suspect pulled out what has been described as a green handled screwdriver from his pocket. Seeing the weapon, the victim fled on foot to get away. The suspect commanded his dog to go after the victim. The dog caught the victim and tripped him, causing him to fall onto the street. The suspect jumped on top of the victim and was observed delivering several stabs to the area of the victims face with the screwdriver. The suspect and his girlfriend fled the area with the dog.

Joseph Hanlon, a 23-year-old man with no fixed address is wanted for Aggravated Assault and 2 counts of Assault With A Weapon. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
