Toronto Police are asking for help finding a man who allegedly threw a hot cup of coffee at a woman on the TTC last month.

On Friday, March 11, just a few minutes after 9 a.m., a man is said to have boarded the TTC travelling southbound toward Wellesley from Yonge Station, according to an April 26 news release.

It was reported that the man approached another passenger and started a physical altercation with him. Afterwards, he went to a different passenger and threatened to hurt her.

Police said the suspect then threw a hot cup of coffee at the woman before getting off at Wellesley Station and fleeing the scene.

Toronto Police are looking for a man approximately 45 to 50 years old, between the height of 5 feet, 5 inches and 5 feet 9 inches tall, who is described as having a "mostly shaved head with blond patches of hair."

The suspect is said to have a silver septum piercing and a silver earring through the top of his left ear. The man is also described to have a tattoo on the left side of his neck.

Police said that he was wearing a grey and black baseball cap, a black Nautica jacket, blue jeans and white running shoes, and he was carrying a black bag.

The suspect is wanted for assault with a weapon, and for uttering threats of bodily harm.

Police think there may have been other victims and would like to speak to anyone involved in the incident.

Police are warning the public to not approach the suspect and to call 911 right away if he is seen.

Narcity reached out to Toronto Police and will update this article as soon as we hear back.
