Toronto police ID two suspects in Main Street TTC station stabbing
Toronto police have identified the two suspects being sought in connection with a stabbing at Main Street subway station that left a man critically injured last week.
Police said a 23-year-old man was exiting the TTC Line 2 station on the evening of May 13 when two men chased him back inside and stabbed him with a knife.
The 23-year-old ran out of the station to escape the two men, but they caught up with him and allegedly stabbed him again, police said.
The suspects then fled the scene and headed towards Danforth Avenue, leaving the victim with life-threatening injuries.
Police and paramedics arrived, and he was transported to the hospital.
Police released security camera images and descriptions of the two suspects on Monday, asking the public for help in identifying them.
In a news release issued late Friday, police named the two suspects – 20-year-old Taijuane Kane and 21-year-old Keysean Patterson.
Both are wanted for attempted murder.
“They are both considered to be armed and dangerous. If located, do no approach, call 9-1-1 immediately,” police said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-5500 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
