On Sunday September 3rd 2017 shortly after 2:00 AM, police responded to the intersection of Maria Street and Elizabeth Street in Burlington in response to a report of a stabbing.

On arrival, police located a 23-year old male victim from Burlington with a laceration to his left bicep.  The victim went to Joseph Brant Hospital where he received 10 stitches to close the wound.

Police learned that the victim and his girlfriend were walking home after having attended a downtown bar when they came across  a group of 3-4 males and a female.

One of the males was alleged to have made an insulting remark to the victim which started a fight between the victim and the group of males.

During the fight, the victim was stabbed by one of the males who brandished what was described as a black handled knife.

The only descriptions at this time are that the males were all white in their twenties and the female was white with long dark hair, thin build and a half or full sleeve tattoo.
