Police have identified a suspect in a vicious attack late Saturday that left a Cambridge man fighting for his life in a Hamilton hospital.

Waterloo regional police were called to McKay Street around 11:30 p.m. Saturday in response to a disturbance.

When they arrived, they found a 30-year-old man who had suffered "serious but not-life-threatening injuries."

Const. Andre Johnson confirmed Wednesday the man remains in the intensive care unit but is expected to survive.

He added investigators have identified a suspect who was spotted fleeing the scene, but he is not yet in custody.

"At this point we are not releasing the name of the suspect," Johnsons said.

Investigators believe this was a targeted incident and there is no public safety concern.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 519-570-9777 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
