Now that we know where the incident did occur, can we update this post? The address currently indicated in the headline shows where the subject lives (not where the incident happened, which is Berkeley & Carlton). Thank you

As far as I know, the exact location where the stabbing took place has not been announced and although the victim called from Bowman/Sackville, we haven’t had confirmation that they live there. The latest news we have is that the incident took place somewhere between Berkeley/Carlton and Bowman/Sackville Place, so the word “near” seems to still be accurate. If there has been any news that we’ve missed however, please do let us know.

We haven’t had any updates as to the victim’s condition, or heard anything new about the investigation to date. We are monitoring for updates of course, and we hope that the victim recovers quickly.
