Three stabbings in GTA overnight

Three men were rushed to hospital with serious injuries following separate stabbings in the GTA.

Toronto Police said officers responded to Spadina Ave. and Bulwer St., a block north of Queen St. W., around 3:30 a.m. Saturday for the last of the three stabbing calls.

“Once on scene an unconscious male was located with stab wounds,” Const. Wendy Drummond said. “He was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries.”

She said the victim, believed to be 23, was undergoing “trauma surgery.”

No further update on the man’s condition or details of the stabbing were immediately available.

And no arrests had been made.

Drummond said the Homicide Unit has been “notified” but 52 Division detectives are still handling the case.

About 45 minutes earlier, a couple of blocks up Spadina Ave. near Nassau St., police from 52 Division dealt with another bloody incident.

“A passerby alerted police to the scene,” Drummond said.

A man, thought to be in his 20s, was found suffering from stab wounds to his chest and abdomen.

“The victim was taken to hospital where he is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries,” Drummond said.

No arrests have been made in the incident.

Police could not immediately say if the two Chinatown stabbings were connected.

Around 2:25 a.m., cops north of the city were called to a stabbing at a Newmarket home.

York Regional Police said a man, 31, suffered serious injuries in an altercation on Maurice Ct., northeast of Davis Dr. and Yonge St. He was rushed to a trauma centre in Toronto.

A man, 32, was taken into custody but there was no word on charges.

All three incidents remain under investigation.
