A 23-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a stabbing at St. George subway station that left another man in serious condition.

Toronto police said a 30-year-old man was talking to someone on the station's platform around 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday when another man approached and stabbed him in the neck.

Paramedics said the victim was rushed to hospital in serious but non-life-threatening condition.

Police said the suspect was arrested and charged with assault with a weapon.

The attack, which police described as "unprovoked," marks the second time a violent incident took place on a subway platform in the past week, after a woman was pushed onto subway tracks Sunday evening.

The accused is scheduled to attend court Thursday at 9:30 a.m.
