Police determined that the victim and two suspects — who were arrested a short time later near Balmoral Street and Portage Avenue — were at the hotel together when an argument led to the assault. Police seized two knives in the arrest.

The suspects, 26 and 29, are each facing charges of aggravated assault, possessing a weapon and failing to comply with probation.
