Montreal police spokesperson Manuel Couture said officers were called at around 7 p.m. on Friday to reports of a woman being stabbed inside an apartment building on Aylwin Street, near the intersection of Sherbrooke Street in the borough of Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found the woman with injuries to her upper body possibly caused by a sharp object.

A 32-year-old man was arrested nearby and taken to hospital for evaluation.
He is expected to meet with investigators during the day on Saturday.
