Photos show man, two women wanted for assault on cabbie

Police have released photos of three people wanted after an assault with a knife on Monday, February 13 near Spadina Avenue and Wellington Street West. A man and two women got out of a taxi without paying. The driver followed them demanding to be paid. The police release says the man “produced a knife and pressed it against the driver’s stomach”. He also threatened the cabbie, prompting him to retreat to his vehicle. The man is described as approximately 5’2” with facial hair on his chin, average build, wearing a black toque, black hoodie, and black winter jacket. The first woman is described as 5’2″, 22-25, with a very thin build, and messy, long, black hair, wearing a blue jacket. The second woman is described as 5’6”, 25-30, with a medium build. She was wearing a blue jacket and red toque.


Police are also sorting out a stabbing somewhere along Spadina Ave. between Queen West and Adelaide West. The victim, a man, was found around 6 a.m. Sunday with serious wounds to his legs at Adelaide but cops feel the attack may have occurred further north.
