Calgary police arrest teen following restaurant stabbing incident – Calgary
Calgary police have charged a teenager in relation to an assault at a fast food restaurant on Tuesday.
Police were called to the area of Southland Drive and Elbow Drive S.W. for reports of an assault outside a Tim Horton’s restaurant at 10233 Elbow Drive S.W. at around 1:30 p.m. When they arrived, officers found a man who appeared to be suffering from multiple stab wounds.
The man was transported to hospital in life-threatening condition. The man remains in hospital but his condition has been upgraded to serious but stable.
Police believe the man became involved in an argument with a group of kids while inside the restaurant, and the group eventually left. When the man exited, a confrontation between the man and the group followed, resulting in one of the teens stabbing the man, police said.
