Man injured in stabbing downtown may have walked short distance before being found by police

Toronto police say they believe a man who was injured in a stabbing downtown walked a short distance before he was found early Sunday.

Const. Caroline de Kloet, spokesperson for the Toronto Police Service, said police received a call about the stabbing at about 6:15 a.m. 

She said officers located the man at Adelaide Street West and Spadina Avenue with wounds to his legs.

Police believe, however, the incident may have occurred near Queen Street West and Spadina Avenue, which is farther north from where the man was found.

Police piecing together what happened

De Kloet said police are reviewing surveillance camera footage from the area to determine where the incident actually occurred and how the man got from one area to the next.

"We have to piece this together," she said Sunday.

Police closed eastbound Queen Street West at Spadina Avenue to collect evidence, but have since reopened the road.

Southbound Spadina is still closed from Richmond Street West to Camden Street, she said.

Dave Viljak, spokesperson for Toronto Paramedic Services, said the man was in serious condition when he was found with stab wounds. He was transported to hospital.
