Two men are injured and two have been arrested after a fight in downtown Montreal early Monday morning, according to police.

Montreal police spokesperson Véronique Comtois says officers received a call at 2:45 a.m. concerning a possible fight at an apartment on Jeanne-Mance Street near Sherbrooke Street.

That call was then followed by another 911 call saying a man was stabbed at the same apartment, Comtois says.
