The injured man was promptly transported to the hospital for treatment, where he remains under medical care. Fortunately, his condition has been assessed as not life-threatening.

In a surprising turn of events, the injured individual has been arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon and handling stolen goods.

Authorities have since closed the crime scenes, with investigations now being led by South Area CID.
