Hamilton man in serious condition after stabbing

Andy DeBroux, 30, of Cameron Avenue North, remains in serious condition at Hamilton General Hospital with a chest wound Hamilton- Wentworth police say was inflicted by a sword with a metre-long (39- inch) blade.

Regional Inspector John Lynch of the Hamilton-Wentworth police said an argument had taken place prior to the stabbing and alcohol was involved.

I knew about this, but I didn’t know it was a sword. That makes your dad that much more bad-ass.
