A four-month-old infant girl and a man were rushed to hospital with serious injuries and an injured woman has been arrested following a stabbing incident in west Toronto today. The child is in critical condition at SickKids Hospital, while the man was taken to St. Michael’s Hospital with non-life-threatening stab wounds.
When officers arrived on scene, little girl was found unconscious with what Const. David Hopkinson described as “grievous” injuries and a man was located with stab wounds.
A woman was apprehended a short time after police arrived, and was subsequently taken to hospital for serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Police say she was fleeing the scene when she was apprehended.
The incident occurred at a condo near Sherway Gardens Road and Evans Road in Etobicoke. Police do not overlook the involvement of residents of the condo.They’re also looking at as many as three scenes in the case.
Police say someone called them to the scene from the lobby of a building in the area at 8:35 a.m. The caller said a man and a baby had been stabbed.
Const. David Hopkinson said, “The baby was also assaulted in another manner and the injuries were serious.” He added that police provided an escort for the ambulance carrying the baby in hopes of getting the child to the hospital sooner.
He said, “The baby is suffering from very serious wounds.”
Police are seeking additional information from the public to determine what precipitated the event.
