Montreal police say the victim of an alleged stabbing at a grocery store in Rosemont Tuesday morning is no longer in critical condition.

The SPVM says the incident happened around 9:10 a.m. at the Maxi on Masson Street near Molson Street. Multiple 911 calls were made to police about the incident.

The victim, a 47-year-old man, suffered upper-body injuries, police spokesperson Jeanne Drouin told CityNews. He was transported to hospital in critical condition and health authorities later confirmed his life is no longer in danger.

A 21-year-old male suspect was arrested on site and taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The SPVM says the suspect and victim were employees of the Maxi, where the alleged stabbing took place. The employees reportedly had an argument that escalated.
