Halton Police confirmed they have arrested the suspect involved in a stabbing at a park in Oakville on Tuesday evening.
At approximately 7 p.m., police received information that a man was acting suspicious and approaching random people in the area of Clearview Park.
While searching for the male, it was learned a male in his 60’s had been stabbed. He was
taken to a trauma centre with serious, non life-threatening injuries.
Not too long after, police located and arrested a 34-year-old male from Mississauga.
Charges against the man are pending. Further information on his identity and charges, police say, will be released at a later time.
Based on the investigation, there is no known relationship between the suspect and the victim and the incident appears to have been random and unprovoked.
Police are asking that anyone who may have been in the park around this time and observed any unusual behaviour by anyone in or near the park contact the 2 District Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905-825-4777, ext. 2215 or ext. 2216.
