“He is described as five feet eight inches tall, average build, with a full beard and a buzz-cut hair style. He was wearing a white T-shirt and black pants.” Look at that picture: that’s no buzz cut. But it does look as if it could be someone out to prove his devotion to Allah during Ramadan. And he did slash one of his victims in the neck, as per the Quran’s command to “strike the necks” of the unbelievers (47:4). But will we ever be told the full details of this incident by a sharia-compliant Canadian government and media? That’s an open question.
Toronto police are looking for a suspect after two 15-year-old boys were attacked in Scarborough.
Officers were called to Jaguar Street and Meandering Trail, near Sheppard Avenue East and Meadowvale Road, around 5 p.m. on Tuesday.
One of two teenaged victims seriously injured in a seemingly random attack says the unknown suspect told him “I want your life” after slashing his neck with a knife.
Police said the two 15-year-old boys had just finished school and were walking near Jaguar Street and Meandering Trail at around 4:45 p.m. on Tuesday when an unknown male approached them from behind. He then attacked both boys with a knife.
One of the victims was slashed across the neck and suffered life-threatening injuries. On Wednesday morning, police said his condition has improved and he is expected to survive. The other teen was stabbed in the chest but his injuries are minor.
The suspect fled the scene on foot. He is described as white, five feet eight inches tall, average build, with a full beard and a buzz-cut hair style. He was wearing a white T-shirt and black pants.
Investigators believe he is violent, armed and dangerous. If you do see him, you are asked not to approach him and call 911.
City councillor asks residents to ‘stay calm’
Scarborough-Rouge River Coun. Neethan Shan, who represents the area, called this incident “very worrisome.”
“The community is very frustrated and also kind of scared because this is a community that has been very peaceful. There are a number of children in this neighbourhood. Most of the families are extended families with many children under the age of 12. There is an elementary school in the neighbourhood,” he said Wednesday.
“So people have been feeling very concerned in this area.”
Shan also asked anyone with information to contact investigators.
“I would urge the community to stay calm but also would like to tell the community see if they have any cameras on their porches, if they have any dash cameras that was operating during the time, to call police,” he told CP24.
“It is an important collective effort to find this person and I think the community will do that.”
