Suspect arrested in deadly North York stabbing


Toronto police say a suspect involved in a deadly stabbing outside a commercial plaza in North York last weekend has been arrested.

Police were called to the area of Bathurst Street and Wilson Avenue just after 6 a.m. Saturday for reports of a man with serious injuries on a roadway.

Investigators said two men were involved in an altercation in front of a commercial plaza when one was stabbed with a sharp-edged weapon.

Emergency crews attempted life-saving measures when they arrived, but the man was pronounced dead a short time later.

The victim was identified by police as 51-year-old Jolly An of Toronto, the city’s 19th homicide victim this year.

Earlier this week, police identified 67-year-old Alfonso Corpuz, who was described as armed and dangerous, as a suspect.

On Friday, police announced Corpuz had been arrested a day earlier and charged with second-degree murder in connection with the stabbing.

Corpuz is scheduled to appear in a Toronto courtroom on Friday. Top Stories

Real quick — what did you have for lunch yesterday? Were you with anyone? Where were you? Can you picture the scene? The ability to remember things that happened to you in the past, especially to go back and recall little incidental details, is a hallmark of what psychologists call episodic memory — and new research indicates that it’s an ability humans may share with birds called Eurasian jays.
