Police identify two more suspects in robbery, stabbing of off-duty cop at Best Buy in Toronto


Police have identified two more suspects and released their images in connection with a theft and stabbing that injured an off-duty officer in Toronto.

The incident took place on Wednesday, just before noon, at a Best Buy in the area of McCowan Road and Progress Avenue.

Officers allege three men and a woman went into a Best Buy store and attempted to leave without paying for an item.

An off-duty Toronto police officer in the store tried to prevent the four people from fleeing and was allegedly stabbed. The officer sustained serious injuries to the wrist and was transported to a hospital.

Police say the suspects then loaded the item into a blue Toyota Sienna minivan, which was captured by dashcam footage that police released shortly after the incident.

On Friday, police issued arrest warrants to a 38-year-old man and 47-year-old Jim Dimce Kaluzovski from Keswick.
