An argument between two men in the College Street and Spadina Avenue area escalated to a stabbing Oct. 27 at 12:16 pm. The men were seen arguing, with one attempting to walk into a store when the other stabbed him in the back and fled the scene. The suspect is described as white, approximately six feet, with a medium build and a black beard. He was wearing a dark toque and winter coat, as well as a grey hooded top.

In an unrelated incident on Sept. 18 at 12:45 am, two unknown men approached a victim and attempted to rip a gold chain off his neck in the Brunswick House bar on Bloor Street West. The 20-year-old victim was stabbed when he tried to retrieve the chain. The Toronto Police Service has released security footage of the suspects from outside the bar: one man is black, tall, and slim, and was wearing glasses, a grey zip-up sweater, and a plain white T-shirt. The second man is black, tall, and slim, has a goatee, and was wearing a grey and white baseball-style graphic T-shirt and cargo shorts.

Anyone with information about these or any other crimes is urged to contact the police at 416-808-1400, or anonymously via Crime Stoppers at 416-222-8477.
