A man has been arrested and charged after a stabbing outside the New West Hotel on Main Street.
On Tuesday, at around 7:30 a.m., Winnipeg police responded to the 700 block of Main Street for a report of an injured male that had walked into a business.
Upon arrival, officers found a 25-year-old man suffering from stab wounds, according to a media release.
