A 17-year-old was charged with first-degree murder in the "unprovoked" stabbing death of a man in Mississauga this week, Peel police say.

Mohamed Ahmed was found stabbed in the Roche Court area at around 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 25. He was rushed to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Ahmed was 41.

The teen was arrested on Jan. 26. He is scheduled to appear in a Brampton court for a bail hearing Thursday.

"Police believe this was an unprovoked attack on an innocent victim, and they are not looking for any further suspects," investigators said in a news release.

The teen cannot be named since he was charged under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
