The Air1 helicopter was the first on the scene, followed by officers on the ground who found bystanders giving first aid to a man who had been stabbed. Officers took over giving him first aid before the man was taken to hospital in unstable condition.
He has since been upgraded to stable.

FIGHT OUTSIDE BAR LEAVES ONE MAN IN HOSPITAL
Hours later, at around 2 a.m. Saturday, police were called to a large fight outside a bar in the 200 block of Osborne Street.
The crowd had already broken up when police arrived, though they found a man in his 20s who had been assaulted. He was taken to hospital in critical condition, but has since been upgraded to stable.
People who saw the fight pointed out a suspect, and officers took them into custody. It is believed the two participants knew each other and got into a fight when they left the bar.
A 20-year-old man is facing an aggravated assault charge, and has been released on an undertaking. The charge has not been proven in court.
