Police searching for a suspect after a random stabbing in St. Catharines.
It happened Wednesday afternoon just after 2:00, when a man and a female acquaintance were walking on Vine Street pushing a double baby stroller.
The couple were confronted by a man, who they did not know.
The suspect and the male victim got into a brief physical altercation.
The suspect then started walking toward Carlton Street and could be heard knocking on the doors of homes and running out into traffic attempting to flag down motorists.
He then ran back to the pair, stabbing the man once before fleeing.
His injury described as non life threatening.
Police are looking for a white male, six feet tall, about 130-140 pounds, in his late teens with brown shaggy hair.
He may have taken off and thrown away a camouflage winter coat he was wearing.
Police are asking residents to check their properties and if they find it to contact police.
