“A 35-year-old Hamilton man was found with a large wound to his right leg,” said Staff Sergeant Chris Hastings.

The man was rushed to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

There is no information about the weapon or the attacker.

“The victim is being uncooperative,” said Hastings. “We believe he was targeted and this was not random.”

He added there is no concern for public safety.

Police are no longer holding a scene but continue to investigate the incident.

Sometimes I wonder just how much police effort should go into investigating something where the victim is uncooperative. There may be reasons of personal safety/retaliation behind it, but more often it seems the victim was involved in some activity they don’t want police to know about.

Again with location misdirect understood, just as scary though.

The photo of the intersection is incorrect. That is not upper sherman and stonechurch, that is actually upper OTTAWA and stonechurch. The correct intersection will have a shoppers drugmart

How do you get the streets wrong when the street signs are even shown on the news broadcast? This happened at the corner of Stonechurch and Upper Ottawa. this is nowhere near Upper Sherman.
