A woman was arrested Sunday afternoon after allegedly stabbing a man in a west end neighbourhood.
Police say they responded after multiple reports of a person covered in blood on Evergreen Boulevard at 4:14 p.m. The street is a block north of the Westridge Community Centre and a five-minute walk from Linden Lanes school.
Officers found a 22-year-old man in the area who had allegedly been stabbed three times in the upper body, according to a Monday morning press release.
Police arrested a 44-year-old woman for the stabbing.
A neighbour, who declined to give his name when the Sun went to the street on Monday afternoon, said he was fixing his front screen door on Sunday when he saw a man walk toward Willowdale Crescent with blood covering his head and chest.

The neighbour pointed out a duplex up the block, where he said a woman was outside after possibly arguing with the injured man.
Another neighbour, who also declined to give her name, said her husband was one of the people who called the police on Sunday afternoon. She said he saw the injured man covered in blood and walking away from the house where the stabbing allegedly took place.
She said the man took off his sweater as he walked down the street and the woman standing outside the house had blood on her hands.
Alicia Brau-Fifi, who lives next door, said she was home all day on Sunday, but didn’t see anything out of the ordinary. She was surprised when she heard about the alleged stabbing and said the neighbourhood is generally quiet.
The majority of people who live on the block are older, young couples or are families with children, Brau-Fifi said.
One man, who also asked not to be named, said he saw approximately five police cars in total on the street Sunday afternoon, some parked on Willowdale Crescent and some parked outside the house where the stabbing allegedly happened.
The suspect and alleged victim are known to each other, according to police. The man was taken to the Brandon Regional Health Centre for treatment and is expected to make a full recovery.
The 44-year-old woman is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 30 on charges of assault with a weapon.
