Arrest in Malvern road-rage stabbing

Toronto Police have made an arrest following a road-rage incident that escalated into a stabbing early Monday morning in Malvern.

John Hoang turned himself in on Tuesday.  He peacefully surrendered to police at 14 Division a day after the incident occurred.

The 28-year-old man is facing three charges including aggravated assault and assault with a weapon.

Gunanayagam Thurainayagam, a 35-year-old Scarborough man, is in stable condition but still recovering in hospital from life-threatening stab wounds resulting from the incident.  The father of two is expected to survive.

Police say the incident took place in the Neilson Road and Wickson Trail area around 7 a.m. Monday morning.

Police believe the altercation began as a road-rage incident on Highway 401, where the two men got into an argument after a minor collision.

Thurainayagam was then followed back to Wickson Trail where the suspect smashed the window of his Toyota Camry.  When he got out to confront the suspect, he was stabbed multiple times in the back.

Thurainayagam then managed to drive himself home to a building on McLevin Avenue where police were called. The victim was rushed to hospital by ambulance.

Hoang was to appear in court on the charges on Tuesday.
