A teenager has been stabbed on the grounds of a school in Montreal North, according to Montreal police.

Police say the 17-year-old victim is expected to survive, but suffered stab wounds to the upper body.

The teen was stabbed with a long blade, possibly a machete, police said, at 4:40 p.m. Monday outside Calixa-Lavallee High School on Pelletier Avenue.

The suspect is likely also a minor and could be as young as 12, said SPVM spokesperson Sabrina Gauthier, but no arrests have been made. She said police are looking for more than one suspect related to the incident.

Police said a fight escalated between several young people concerning a possible bicycle theft.

The victim was taken to hospital and is not cooperating with police, said Gauthier.
