A man was stabbed several times and bear sprayed while a woman was assaulted on Tuesday, Winnipeg police say.
Police found a man is his 20s at a nearby restaurant on Keewatin Street and Logan Avenue suffering from stab wounds and the effects of bear spray after responding to an assault report at 9:57 p.m.
Emergency first aid was administered and he was taken to the hospital in unstable condition but later upgraded to stable.
Additionally, a woman also in her 20s was found nearby with minor injuries after being assaulted but she did not require medical assistance at the scene, police say.
