Calgary police say two men were taken to hospital for stab wounds that happened at a CTrain station Tuesday morning.
Officers tell CityNews an “altercation” happened at the Erlton/Stampede LRT Station at around 1:30 a.m.
They say a man was “stabbed in the chest” and taken to Foothills Hospital in serious non-life-threatening condition.
In an update Tuesday afternoon, officers say two hours after the first incident, another man flagged down Calgary Transit officers indicating he was stabbed. They say he was taken to hospital in stable condition.
Meanwhile, police say two people, a man and a woman, have been identified and have not been arrested.
Police say it’s unclear what the motive is or if it was targeted.
CTrain service has not been impacted due to the incident.
This comes as the city put forward “immediate” action to increase safety on CTrains after multiple incidents happened at different stations.
In addition, Alberta Premier Danielle Smith announced plans to support increased safety on transit for Calgary and Edmonton Tuesday morning.
Police ask anyone with information about this incident to call them at 403-266-1234 or leave a tip anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
