Police are looking for an assailant after a 15-year-old male sustained two stab wounds in his torso at around 11 a.m. today, in a parking lot off Overlea Boulevard, west of Don Mills Road.
According to Det. Jeremy Gray, the victim fled to a nearby Popeye’s chicken restaurant, in the Thorncliffe Park Plaza. He was taken to hospital where he was reported as conscious, with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police were present at two schools near the scene of the stabbing: Marc Garneau Collegiate Institute and Valley Park Middle School. Toronto District School Board spokesman Ryan Bird said that both schools were put under a hold-and-secure, which was lifted before 1 p.m.
