Three men are facing charges after a stabbing outside of a bar in Oshawa.
On Dec. 23, at approximately 2:31 a.m., police were called to Ritson Road North and Taunton Road East in Oshawa after a 22-year-old male from Oshawa was stabbed with a knife outside of the Player’s Bench bar. Three suspects were seen fleeing in a vehicle. The victim received serious wounds and was taken to hospital for treatment of his injuries.

The third suspect was located at a nearby residence a short time later. Both vehicles received minor damage in the collision.
