Two black 17-year-olds charged with murder in teen's stabbing at 551 The West Mall in Toronto : Black Lives Matter BLM
Earlier this week, Toronto Police released video of the young victim running for his life as two unidentified assailants gave chase outside a highrise at 551 The West Mall, south of Rathburn Rd., on Feb. 3.
The security-camera footage captured the final terrifying moments of Saed Keyliye’s life after he and two friends met with his suspected killers behind the apartment building that evening, Homicide Det. Andy Singh explained at a news conference Monday.
“Shortly after they met, there was an altercation which resulted in Saed being stabbed,” he said.
Singh refused to elaborate on the reason for the “prearranged meeting.”
But he did say the teen’s slaying was not thought to be gang related and the victim was not known to police.
In the disturbing video clips, Keyliye can be see fleeing as one of his suspected killers rushes to head him off. The victim then runs the opposite way as the attacker stalks him while apparently pulling something from the back of his pants.
Another video clip captured a suspected getaway car, described as a four-door, grey Honda Civic, as it headed west on Rathburn Rd.
Two 17-year-old boys, who can’t be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, are charged with second-degree murder.
Const. Jenifferjit Sidhu said the teens were taken into custody Wednesday with help from Peel Regional Police.
“No other suspects are being sought at this time,” Sidhu said.
