Police say a 34-year-old man was sent to Hotel-Dieu Grace Hospital with a puncture wound to his lower abdomen around 12:45 a.m. Tuesday.
Officers were called to the 3800 block of McGuire Street for a report of a stabbing.
They say the injuries do not appear life threatening.
A suspect fled the scene and the forensic identification and canine unit assisted with the investigation.
A 39-year-old Belle River man was discovered two hours later in the 700 block of Sandison Street hiding in a nearby yard.
He was taken into custody without incident.
Investigators determined the assault occurred between the two men after the suspect entered his ex-girlfriend’s home and confronted the current boyfriend.
An altercation occurred at which time the suspect grabbed a knife and stabbed the victim.
A weapon was recovered at the scene.
The suspect is tentatively facing charges of assault with a weapon and breaching a probation order prohibiting him from having alcohol.
