Toronto police have reported that a man died on Saturday afternoon after being stabbed in the city’s east end. The incident took place in the vicinity of Woodbine Avenue and O’Connor Drive, with authorities receiving a call about the incident at around 4:45 p.m. Upon their arrival, they discovered the man with life-threatening injuries. He was immediately transported to the hospital but was sadly pronounced dead.
Thankfully, the police were able to apprehend a male suspect without any trouble, according to Inspector Suzanne Redman. She assured the public that there is currently no risk to public safety. However, while the stabbing was determined to be a targeted attack, Redman refrained from providing further information regarding the relationship between the suspect and the victim.
The incident is believed to have taken place at Trillium Apartments on Woodbine Avenue, but the authorities have yet to confirm whether the stabbing occurred indoors or outdoors. Initially, paramedics informed CBC Toronto that the victim was in his 40s. However, Inspector Redman later clarified that he was between 30 and 40 years old.
Further details about the case are currently unavailable. The investigation is ongoing, and more information will likely be released as it becomes available.
