Toronto police release videos of suspect who allegedly bumped into stranger, stabbed them


Toronto police have released videos of a suspect who allegedly stabbed a stranger he bumped into in the city’s Mount Dennis neighbourhood earlier this week.

Officers received a call for an assault in the area of Weston Road and Eglinton Avenue West shortly after 9:30 a.m. on Monday.

After bumping into the victim, the suspect allegedly brandished a knife and stabbed them.

Police said the victim, who did not know the suspect, fled to a place of safety suffering from non-life-threatening injuries.

On Wednesday, police posted three videos of the suspect, including one showing him exiting an apartment building. In the two other videos, the suspect is seen walking into a back alley lane.

He is described as being in his 20s, five-foot-six, with a slim build and slim face.

Police ask anyone with information about the suspect to contact them at 416-808-1200 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477) or 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.
