Two men injured in separate north Toronto stabbings

Police responded to two separate stabbing incidents in north Toronto neighbourhoods early on Wednesday morning. 

The first was reported around 1:30 a.m., when a witness called police about a man who had been stabbed on Felan Crescent, near the intersection of Kipling Avenue and Albion Road.

Emergency crews found the victim, a 24-year-old man, suffering from multiple stab wounds to his torso and back.

Paramedics rushed him to hospital and then he underwent surgery to treat his serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

Police believe the victim was jumped by a group of young men, but said he is not cooperating with the investigation.

The second stabbing occurred at around 1:40 a.m., when a 21-year-old was knifed on Yonge Street near Elmwood Avenue, south of the North York Civic Centre.

Police with Toronto’s 32 Division say an argument started inside a Jack Astor’s restaurant and continued outside. A 21-year-old man sustained stab wounds to his lower body during the altercation. 

Emergency crews transported him to Sunnybrook Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. He’s expected to make a full recovery.

A man in his 20s has been charged in connection with the stabbing.
