Two men were taken to hospital in critical condition after being stabbed outside The Forks Market early Wednesday morning, police say.
Officers responded to a report of a stabbing around 12:30 a.m. The men, both in their 20s, were taken to hospital and later upgraded to stable condition, the Winnipeg Police Service said in a news release.
A woman in her 20s was also treated for minor injuries, though she hadn’t been stabbed, police said.
Police used their tactical support team to arrest six suspects in the area: four youths and two adults. None have been charged, the release said.
The major crimes unit continues to investigate. Anyone with information is asked to call them at 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 204-786-8477.
The incident comes just over a day after a father and daughter were assaulted by a group of teenage girls in an attempted robbery in the parking lot of The Forks market around 8 p.m. Monday.
Police found and arrested three suspects in that incident — ages 13, 14 and 15 — while others escaped. A warrant was issued for another 14-year-old girl in that incident. All face robbery-related charges, police said.
