According to police, the victim was waiting for a bus in the vicinity of Spadina Road and Eglinton Avenue at around 5:45 a.m. when a male suspect approached him from behind holding a knife and demanded that he hand over his valuables.

The suspect is described as a black male, about five-foot-ten with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a light blue hooded sweater and dark khaki pants.
