A sex worker was stabbed early this morning on The Main: Sex worker stabbed on lower Main
There are several noteworthy items in the story:MONTREAL—One woman was stabbed early Sunday morning during an altercation between sex workers on St-Laurent Blvd.
According to Montreal police spokesman Yannick Ouimet, one prostitute suffered non-life-threatening injuries after she was stabbed near Montreal Pool Room on the lower Main.
The incident took place at around 2:45 a.m. in the area that once hosted Montreal’s red-light district. With the gentrification caused by the construction of the nearby Quartier des Spectacles, the area has seen an increase in incidences of violent crime.
- There are still street walkers on the Main. I thought that they had all moved on to the East End.
- It would appear that this time a street walker was the victim of another street walker, and not a bad client.
- The article indicates that the cleanup of the area has actually resulted in an increase, not a decrease, in violent crime in the area.
