A second arrest has been made in connection with a deadly assault in Scarborough last month.
Officers with Toronto Police Service were first dispatched to an apartment building on Antrim Crescent, located in the area of Kennedy Road and Highway 401, at around 11 p.m. on Sept. 22 for a medical complaint.
Upon arrival at the scene, investigators said they located “the lifeless body” of a male victim, later identified as 52-year-old Edwin McGowan, inside his 15th floor unit.
