At the time, police said that a verbal altercation between three or four men turned physical, and one of the men was stabbed in the arm and back.

Two or three men were seen running away from the scene.

Police said the incident was not gang-related.

Fox remains in custody, and his next court appearance is scheduled for Dec. 9.

According to the provincial court database, Fox was previously charged with robbery, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose and assault causing bodily harm from June 10 of this year.

Those charges are still making their way through the courts.
