A 33-year-old man is in critical condition after being stabbed in the heart near Yonge-Dundas Square Wednesday morning after he bumped into two men while he was texting, police say.
Paramedics were called to the scene at around 12:30 a.m on Wednesday and transported a male victim to hospital with life threatening stab wounds.
According to police, a confrontation started after the victim bumped into one of the two men while he was texting.
“Those men took exception and took it as a direct slight against them,” Const. Victor Kwong said Wednesday morning. “So they attacked the victim.”
The 33-year-old was “well disciplined” in fighting techniques, and originally fought the two attackers off before one of the suspects pulled out a knife and stabbed him, police allege.
Mohamed Ali, 27, has been arrested and charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault. Police are seeking one more suspect in connection with the stabbing...Hey, I bet it happens all the time--in, say, Saudi Arabia.
