Toronto stabbing of 2 Scarborough teens on May 22, 2018 video realeased of suspect
Toronto Police issued a public safety alert after a knife-wielding stranger attacked two 15-year-old boys on a Scarborough street on Tuesday afternoon.
The teens were walking in the Jaguar St. and Meandering Trail area, south of the Toronto Zoo, around 4:45 p.m. when “they were attacked from behind by a stranger with a knife,” police spokesman Gary Long said Wednesday.
The man cut one boy in the neck and then injured the other when he came to his friend’s aid.
The teen’s neck injury was initially listed as life-threatening while the other boy was treated for minor injuries.
Both boys have since been released from hospital.
The attacker, who fled on foot, is described as white, about 5-foot-8 with an average build, a full beard and buzz-cut hair. He was wearing a white T-shirt and black pants.
On Wednesday, Toronto police released footage from area surveillance cameras of the attacker walking along a residential sidewalk.
Police say the man, who is wanted for attempted murder, is believed to be violent, armed and dangerous. Anyone who sees him is urged to call 911 and not approach him.
