Woman, 34, arrested after triple stabbing in downtown Brampton
Peel Regional Police say three people are injured, and a woman is in custody following a midday stabbing in Brampton.

Police said the three victims were found with stab wounds in an apartment building above a business on Main Street.

Investigators said initially that a woman was rushed to a trauma centre in life-threatening condition, while a man was transported to a trauma centre with serious but non-life-threatening injuries and a second man was taken to a local hospital in serious condition.

According to Const. Akhil Mooken, the woman has since been upgraded to non-life-threatening condition.

He also said a 34-year-old woman is in police custody in relation to the incident, which police believe was targeted.

Police would not specify what the relationship is between the victims and the suspect except to say that they were known to each other.

A third victim, a 45-year-old man, was taken to a local hospital in non-life threatening condition, but he has since been released.

There’s currently no information on the relationship between the victims and suspect, police said.

Paramedics took one of the men to a trauma centre but in serious and not life-threatening condition and the other man to a local hospital in serious condition.

Const. Akhil Mooken said officers went to an apartment above a business in the area and found a woman suffering from life-threatening injuries, a man with serious injuries and a second man with less serious injuries.

Peel paramedics took the woman to a trauma centre in life-threatening condition but her condition has been upgraded to non-life-threatening.

This was a targeted and isolated incident. We would like to assure the community that this was not a random attack, Mooken said.

The stabbing was "targeted and isolated," according to Const. Akhil Mooken, spokesperson for Peel Regional Police.

Officers were already in the area before the incident occurred as a farmers market was underway outside.
