At approximately 1 a.m. on Saturday, June 13, a group of friends stepped out of a pool hall in the Warden Avenue and Ellesmere Road area. Once on the sidewalk, they got into an altercation with a second group, police say, and the dispute became violent.
One man was pepper-sprayed and another man was stabbed in the back, police allege, and the perpetrators were from the second group. They fled in a white vehicle and a light-coloured vehicle.
Police are calling men from the second group suspects in an attempted murder investigation. They are described by police as follows:
- A skinny brown man with short black hair and a beard, wearing a blue Adidas jacket with white stripes on the sleeves and light-blue jeans.
- A heavy brown man with black hair, a beard, and tattoos on both forearms, wearing a khaki hoodie and khaki pants.
Police consider the men armed and dangerous, and warn anyone who sees them not to approach but call 911 immediately.
A surveillance video of the men entering a building was released on Tuesday.
