The search for evidence continues in a series of random and violent attacks in downtown Calgary last week and police are turning to the public for help.
Police were called in to two machete attacks in the city center early in the morning of October 15. Now police believe the suspect may have been wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey with Belfour’s name and number 20 on the back.

Police said one of the two victims remains in the hospital under intensive care.
Just after 3:00 am on October 15, a man called 911 saying he had been cut with a machete at the 4 Street CTrain station.
A second call came about half an hour later, when another man was discovered unconscious at a bus stop at 6 Ave. and 1 St. SW.
