Stabbing close to the MAC has left three people in the hospital

By Josh Beneteau and Jackie Hong

One man is facing 20 charges after three people were stabbed and three more were attacked not but injured near the Mattamy Athletic Centre (MAC) Sunday morning in a seemingly random attack, Toronto police said.

Police received a call about a man armed with a knife walking around the Church and Carlton streets area around 8:30 a.m. Sunday. According to police,  the man confronted an 18-year-old male and stabbed him in the chest, then walked south on Church Street, began to yell at a 45-year-old male who was jogging and stabbed him above the kidney. The man then came across a 19-year-old female and stabbed her in the rib area, tried to stab two people who managed to escape and finally stabbed a 28-year-old female in the chest.

Police said one of the women had a phone in her pocket that deflected the knife but could not confirm which woman it was. She was not injured.
