Halifax Regional Police are currently probing an early morning weapon assault in Dartmouth.
Police were called to the Lake City Motel at 40 Lake Crest Drive in Dartmouth at about 3:05 a.m. following reports of a stabbing. At the scene, they found a 30-year-old man suffering from stab wounds. He was rushed to the hospital with injuries that might be life-threatening.
