The victim, a 34-year-old woman, was stabbed to the lower body, but her life is not in danger. She went alone to a Montreal hospital around 4:15 am on Saturday morning.

“According to initial information, a suspect known to the victim would have broken into a house located on rue Provost, near avenue 13, in the Lachine district.
