Man stabbed for no apparent reason in downtown Toronto

A man was taken to hospital Friday evening after he was stabbed, unprovoked, on King Street in downtown Toronto, The Canadian Press reported. Cops and paramedics were called to the scene just after 5 p.m. and found the stabbed man “standing up and bleeding with what appeared to be stab wounds,” CBC News reported.

At this time, police have no suspects or motives in the case.

“Nobody’s right to run up behind someone and stab them in the shoulder or kneecap … nothing less than an unprovoked assault warrants that,” Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders told reporters at the scene.

Additional details were not immediately available.
