Two men face assault charges after an apartment stabbing in North Point Douglas Friday.

Police say officers were called to a suite in the 200 block of Austin Street North after a reported stabbing.

A 33-year-old man was found suffering from serious injuries. He was rushed to hospital in unstable condition, but later upgraded to stable.

Investigators believe that the victim was attacked by two people that he knew with a baseball bat and hammer. The pair subsequently fled, and the victim was able to get to the common area of the building where he was found by another resident.

Police were able to track down both suspects TO an apartment in the Central Park area and they were arrested.

A 31-year-old man and a 30-year-old man face assault and weapons charges. Police say the 30-year-old has been connected to an incident on Sept. 3, 2022, when a Winnipeg Transit bus travelling near Main Street and Inkster Boulevard was hit with a rock, breaking its windshield.
