TORONTO - A stabbing at a Canadian military recruitment office in Toronto appears to be an isolated incident and there is no immediate threat to public safety, the country's public safety minister said late on Monday.

CBC News reported that a man walked into the recruitment office on Monday afternoon, pulled out a knife and attacked the person behind the counter. It said a second soldier was cut before being subdued by a group of soldiers and the two people were treated in hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

"While it is premature to comment as an investigation is on-going, the information the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) has at this point suggests this is an isolated incident and that there is no imminent threat to public safety," Ralph Goodale, Canada's minister of public safety, said in a statement.
