The stabbing occurred at around 5:00 AM. Police discovered the weapon - a large bloody knife - at the scene. Another knife was also reportedly laying nearby as well. According to CP24, the victim was just getting off the bus and crossing the road when he was attacked.

"He was over there parked and waiting on the victim. He was by his window watching everything,” says one witness. The attacker was reportedly wearing a hood during the stabbing, to conceal his identity.

The victim was reportedly transported to a trauma centre, where he sadly lost his life. Police have not yet released details on the victim or the assailant, and their identities remain unknown.

The stabbing marks the 66th homicide this year, on par with the total number of homicides in all of 2017. With over 4 months left in the year, 2018 is slated to be one of the deadliest years Toronto has seen in quite some time.
