Ayanle Hassan Ali, the man facing nine charges after two members of Canada's military were stabbed at a recruitment centre in Toronto on Monday, is due back in court today for a bail hearing.
Ali, a 27-year-old born in Montreal, has been in custody since his arrest Monday.
- Three charges of attempted murder.
- Two charges of aggravated assault.
- Three charges of assault with a weapon.
- One count of carrying a weapon dangerous to the public.
Police have said that during the attack, the accused said "Allah told me to do this, Allah told me to come here and kill people."
The attack took place at the Joseph Shepard Building at 4900 Yonge St., which is located just north of Sheppard Avenue in the northern part of the city. The building also houses Passport Canada and Service Canada offices.
Police say a man walked past a master corporal stationed at the door of the centre on Monday afternoon and then stabbed him when he tried to stop him. Authorities say he then stabbed a second military member who tried to apprehend him.
The two victims were treated in hospital and released. None of the injuries were life-threatening.
A Canadian Armed Forces spokesperson said Tuesday that it's "business at usual" at the office where the attack took place.
Members of Canada's Muslim community have denounced the incident as a "hateful act of violence."
