Police have released photos of a person wanted in connection with a stabbing in Mississauga, which sent one person to hospital.

A man was stabbed in the plaza parking lot near Eglinton Avenue West and Ridgeway Drive in Mississauga around 6:30 p.m. yesterday (April 19), Peel Regional Police said in a press release.

The man was transported to a local hospital where his injuries are considered serious yet non-life threatening.
