Guelph police continue to investigate a stabbing which occurred at the Arboretum Monday evening and would like to speak to a male photographed walking away from the scene.

Emergency services were called just after 5 p.m. Monday for an assault which occurred on a trail at the University of Guelph Arboretum. The victim was confronted by a man unknown to him and stabbed in the arm. The assault appears to have been unprovoked.

The victim was treated and released from hospital.
