A 37-year-old Ottawa man faces a slew of charges after a man was stabbed in the chest in west Ottawa Tuesday evening.
Ottawa police and paramedics were called to a residence in the 1400 block of Caldwell Avenue at 5:20 p.m. to assist a 33-year-old male with a stab wound to his upper right chest.
Paramedics transported the patient to hospital. He is expected to make a full recovery.
Police said a verbal altercation between the victim and a 37-year-old male had escalated and that the victim was stabbed with a knife.
