Police have released security camera footage of two suspects wanted in connection with a stabbing in Etobicoke that killed a 17-year-old.

According to police, at around 7 p.m. on Feb. 3, authorities responded to an unknown trouble call in the area of The West Mall and Rathburn Road.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found a man without vital signs suffering from a stab wound.

The victim, 17-year-old Saed Keyliye, was pronounced dead at the scene.

At a news conference on Monday, Det. Sgt. Andy Singh told reporters that the victim was accompanied by two friends when they deliberately met with the two suspects in the area.

Singh said shortly after they met, an altercation took place which resulted in Keyliye being stabbed.

The two friends accompanying Keyliye at the time were not injured as a result of the altercation.

“This was not a random encounter, this was a prearranged meeting,” said Singh on Monday. “But in terms of what the meeting was about I cannot elaborate on.”

Singh said that investigators have no information that indicates the altercation was gang-related. He also said the victim did not have a criminal record.

At the conference, Toronto police released surveillance camera footage that shows the first suspect pursuing the victim on-foot in the direction of The West Mall entrance. The footage then captures the suspect leaving the area alone but returning shortly after with the second suspect. The two suspects then proceed on-foot to the area where the victim was later found.

The surveillance camera footage also shows the suspects leaving the area in a vehicle going westbound on Rathburn Road.

The two male suspects are described as brown-skinned, in their late teens, standing between five-foot-eight and five-foot-ten in height with a thin build and dark hair.

The getaway vehicle is described as a four-door Honda Civic that is grey in colour.

“We’re still appealing for witnesses who may have been present to see the events transpire outside The West Mall,” Singh said. “We encourage those who haven’t spoken to us yet to contact the homicide squad.”

Singh also encouraged the suspects in question to turn themselves in.

“I encourage you to do the right thing – contact a lawyer and turn yourself in. You can make these arrangements with me directly.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators at (416)-808-4100 or Crime Stoppers at (416) 222-TIPS (8477).
