The Saskatchewan men took a taxi to Queen Victoria Hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries. The other group, including the assailant, fled the scene.

The man believed to responsible for the stabbing is described as a white male, about 5’8″, with short hair and a goatee. He was wearing a grey zip-up hoody and blue jeans.

Police are interviewing witnesses at the bars in town and the 7-Eleven, and will reviewing security footage in the hopes of locating the assailants.

Police did interview the Saskatchewan men, one of whom reported the alleged attackers said, “Get out of our town.”
