The James Forcillo trial is currently underway at the University Avenue Courthouse and there has been testimony from two girls who say there were on the streetcar when 18-year-old, Sammy Yatim was yielding a knife.
Christie McGregor is one three sisters who was on the streetcar with her 12-year-old daughter after a Justin Bieber concert back in the summer of 2013. She took the stand stating that it was pure chaos when Yatim pulled out the knife and that she was worried not knowing where her daughter was and that he might have got her.
However, they all managed to get off the streetcar unharmed.
The crown asked McGregor if she was touched at all by Yatim and she replied saying “no. “
Bridgette McGregor was the next to take the stand and she says that Yatim came at her with the knife and that she used her purse as a shield and that the knife did make contact. She was then shaken by a 9-1-1 call she made that was played in the courtroom breaking her down into tears and the judge has now ordered them to take a break.
