Winnipeg police are searching for a suspect after a man was stabbed late last week.

Officers responded to a hotel in the 700 block of Main Street shortly after 1 a.m. on Friday, where they found a 45-year-old man suffering from an upper-body injury. 

Officers applied a chest seal to the victim before emergency crews arrived. The man was transported to hospital in unstable condition but has since been upgraded to stable.

The suspect fled before police arrived, and no arrests have been made. 

Anyone with information that may assist investigators is asked to call 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).

The Major Crimes Unit continues to investigate.
