According to police, on Monday, November 25, at approximately 1:30 am, officers responded to a call for a stabbing in the area of Markham Road and Ellesmere Road.

Police say a man attended a laundromat and while getting out of his car he brushed against a car parked beside him.

As the victim left the laundromat the suspect allegedly became physical.
