Homicide investigators are looking for two suspects wanted in a fatal overnight stabbing.
It happened around 12:20 a.m. at Noble Park on Sandcliff Road near Jane Street and Eglinton Avenue.
Detective Sergeant Steve Ryan says the victim was in the park with a group of his friends, including his girlfriend, when they were confronted by two male suspects.
Ryan says an argument ensued and the victim was stabbed following the altercation. The two suspects then fled in a dark blue vehicle.
The victim was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries where he later succumbed. He’s been identified as 23-year-old Russell Sahadeo of Toronto.
The are described as one Asian, the other black, both in their early 20’s.
Ryan says they are appealing to both suspects to come forward, but it’s in the best interest for the suspect not responsible for the stabbing to turn himself in to help assist with the investigation.
“We’re always interested in speaking with all suspects, but in this case, where I believe there’s one person who committed the stabbing, the person who didn’t do it, it’s in their best interest to call the police,” says Ryan.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Ryan at 647-801-6813, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
