This news follows another incident that occurred at a TTC subway station just yesterday. Trains were forced to bypass Dufferin Station on Toronto's Line 2 subway on Thursday afternoon due to a police investigation. According to police, a stabbing on the mezzanine level of the station forced a temporary shutdown of Dufferin Station. Thankfully, the male victim suffered only non-life threatening injuries.
