Police seek to identify man after downtown stabbing – CityNews Toronto

Toronto police say they are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man they say is related to a stabbing in the city center early Sunday morning.

Police said they were called to the Yonge and Front Street area around 1:30 a.m. for a report that a man had been stabbed.

Investigators said a man approached a group of people, stabbed a man in the group and then fled east on Front Street, possibly towards Scott Street.

The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Police describe the suspect as a man in his 30s, 5’5 ” tall and of medium build. He had curly black hair, a scruffy beard and was last seen wearing baggy clothing, wearing a backpack, and had a construction harness and vest.

“Investigators believe there may be witnesses in the area during the incident and urge them to call the police,” police said in a news release Sunday.

Tips can be left anonymously to Crime Stoppers, police said.
