Police are still searching for the assailant

A young man has been stabbed while waiting for a train at the South Campus LRT station. Police told CBC News that they are still looking for the assailant, who fled the scene.

The police were notified of the incident just before 8 a.m., and are now trying to determine if the stabbing is connected to a robbery of a nearby store as well as a stolen car.

LRT service from South Campus was suspended and a replacement bus service has been set up between South Campus and university station, leading to significant delays for many university students.

Others at the LRT platform stepped in to help the victim.

More to come.
