Toronto police say they are investigating after a man in his 40s was stabbed in Scarborough Monday evening.

Police said they were called at around 7:15 p.m. to the Progress Avenue and Borough Drive area for a report of a fight in a mall parking lot.

Investigators said the victim left the scene before police arrived, but was later found in a car on the side of Highway 401 after he called 911 to ask for help.

It is not known if the victim was the driver, police said.

He was transported to the hospital in serious, but non-life-threatening condition.

Police said they are searching for a suspect described as male and possibly in his late teens. He was seen wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and was holding a large kitchen knife.
