A man is in critical condition in hospital after injuring himself with his own knife when he tripped and fell after allegedly robbing a store in Ottawa's south end Monday, police said.
Police said they were notified about the robbery on Tapiola Crescent at 9:13 a.m. They got a second call about what was called a stabbing short time later.
Paramedics found the injured man all the way over at Southgate Road near Bank Street, about 1.5 km away.
The man had apparently tripped just as he left the store and seriously injured himself, but then was able to make it on foot to Southgate, police said.
Police said the man is in his early 20s, and has been placed under arrest in hospital.
They did not release his name or say what he is charged with.
