Toronto mother charged with attempted murder after baby found with stab wounds
A Toronto mother has been charged with attempted murder after her baby boy was allegedly found with stab wounds on Wednesday afternoon.
Police first attended a building on Canyon Avenue, near Bathurst Street and Sheppard Avenue, at around 4 p.m. after receiving a “medical complaint.”
When officers arrived, they found a woman and baby suffering from injuries.
Initially, police only described the child’s as “puncture wounds.”
On Friday, investigators elaborated on the case, claiming both the child and woman were located with stab wounds.
The boy, who is less than one month old, remains at Sick Kids Hospital in critical but stable condition. Sources tell CTV News Toronto that the baby boy has suffered multiple seizures since arriving there on Wednesday.
“The baby has suffered multiple stab wounds,” Const. David Hopkinson said. “The injuries are quite serious.”
The 36-year-old suspect appeared in court on Thursday and remains in police custody.
Anyone with information about the incident is being asked to contact Toronto police or Crime Stoppers anonymously.
