A 17-year-old boy from Vaughan has been charged following the stabbing death of an 18-year-old man outside a lounge in Toronto earlier this month, police say.

Around 12:45 a.m. on Friday, July 8, police were called to Dufferin Street and Finch Avenue West after a man was stabbed in a plaza parking lot.

Police identified the victim as 18-year-old Auptin Abedini-Senoubari. He was stabbed at least once.

Police say patrons who were at a party became involved in an altercation during which the man was stabbed.

On Saturday homicide investigators, with the assistance of the Emergency Task Force, executed a search warrant on a home in Vaughan and arrested the 17-year-old.

He was charged with one count of second-degree murder and appeared in court at Old City Hall on Saturday morning via video link.
