A verbal argument in the north end turned violent this afternoon.
Hamilton Police were called to Birch Avenue between Barton and Cannon, just after 12:30 for reports of a stabbing.
Police say a dispute between two groups of people resulted in a teen suffering a non-life threatening injury.
A neighbour who lives across the street from where the stabbing occurred says he called 911 after seeing a man bleeding profusely. Barry McDonald adds that he didn’t notice any commotion among the four men prior to the stabbing.
The suspect fled on foot and police say they are receiving limited information from witnesses and those directly involved in the confrontation.
They add there is no ongoing threat to the community.
