Several stabbings overnight in Toronto
A man was stabbed outside the Sunny Sports Bar and Grill on Kingston Rd. near Galloway Rd. around 11 p.m. after one man was stabbed. He was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
“It happened out in front of the bar, so there were lots of people,” said 43 Division Staff-Sgt. Danny Dion.
But late Saturday the accused when a 55-year-old man showed up for a drink and people in the bar called police, police said.
That was part of a violent start to the Labour Day weekend as police investigated a spate of separate stabbings ibetween Friday night and early Saturday morning.
Another young man is in custody and one was taken to hospital after an altercation broke out around 3 a.m. Saturday morning on Yonge St. near Sheppard Ave W.
Staff-Sgt. Cheryl King of 32 Division couldn’t say how the altercation started but that it occurred right on the street and resulted in a 20-year-old man being taken to hospital with a stab wound to his shoulder. He has since been released from hospital.
Sam Naghavi of Richmond Hill is charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm.
And nvestigators responded to an incident on Eglinton Ave. W. near Keele St. just before midnight, where a 22-year-old was stabbed in the stomach by another man. The victim, however, isn’t talking to investigators.
“Because the victim is being uncooperative and not telling us anything ... we only have one of the video cameras (in the area) that caught it.” said 12 Division Staff-Sgt. Keith Smith, adding that it has left police with no idea of a motive, or a good description of the suspect. “Maybe after one ... or two days in hospital, he’ll let us know what happened.”
The victim was taken to Sunnybrook Hospital, underwent emergency surgery and was in stable condition as of Saturday afternoon.
And in an incident near Yonge and Dundas Sts., police found a male stabbing victim in a parking lot around 1 a.m. He was taken to hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries, police said. Please share this
