London Police say one male was taken into custody early Sunday following a violent spree on Fleming Drive that saw one man taken to hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
It’s the third stabbing incident investigated by police just this weekend, and the city’s fifth stabbing incident in less than two weeks.
Police say they were initially called to the scene around 6:49 a.m. for reports a man had been bitten by another man who was known to him.
The suspect fled on foot before officers arrived and allegedly tried to stab a male in front of a neighbouring house, police said.
Soon after, police say the suspect moved onto another residence where he allegedly stabbed a second male outside before assaulting a female. Police say the suspect was known to the first individual, but not to the other three.
Officers took the unidentified suspect into custody outside a nearby address. He remained in custody as of late Sunday morning, and no further suspects are being sought, police said.
Police said it was too early to determine what if any charges would be laid.
The male victim who was stabbed was taken to hospital for non-life threatening injuries. No other victims required medical treatment.
A knife was found at the scene, police said.
The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to contact London Police at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
