Ottawa police are investigating an early Monday morning stabbing on Slater Street that sent one man to hospital.

Officers said they were called to a bar on Slater Street between Bank and O’Connor streets at 2:45 a.m.

A man was found by police with stab wounds in his stomach.

Paramedics took the victim to hospital with non-life threatening injuries and police said he is currently at home resting with “minor injuries.”

Police said no suspects have been arrested.

This was the third stabbing the city had seen in less than 30 hours. Six people were injured in two separate stabbings in the ByWard Market over the weekend.

Police were alerted to the second set of stabbings after a fight broke out at McDonald’s on George Street.

Investigators discovered a protracted dispute that spanned the ByWard Market, beginning with a verbal argument between two groups of people near Tequila Jacks on Clarence Street. A man was hit in the face before the groups went their separate ways.

They ultimately met again near William and York streets where police believe a knife fight took place. One man was stabbed and collapsed with a knife wound to the stomach. Another collapsed near the BeaverTails’ stand on the corner of William and George streets. The most seriously injured man also collapsed a short distance away. All of the victims knew each other but did not know their alleged attackers until things became heated between the two groups of partygoers.

All of these incidents occurred within a couple blocks of Parliament Hill, seat of the Canadian Government.

Police have charged both Mohamed Hamed Mohamed, 26, and Ali Abbari, 21, in connection to those stabbings. They face charges of aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and failure to comply. Both are from Ottawa.

A third suspect, a female, was released without charges.
