Second suspect in Yonge-Dundas Square stabbing turns himself in

TORONTO – The second suspect in a random stabbing near Yonge-Dundas square has turned himself in to police.

Police say Cory Galea, 21, came forward one day after security footage of the second suspect was released.

Mohamed Ali, 27, was arrested Wednesday and charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault.

Police say a 33-year-old male victim was walking and texting in the Yonge-Dundas Square area around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday when he “inadvertently” bumped shoulders with two other men.

Both men took exception and attacked the victim, police said.

Const. David Hopkinson said the man’s attempt at self-defence only further offended the two suspects, one of whom then allegedly stabbed him in the chest.

Hopkinson said the incident seems “totally unique or random” and “It seems like it makes no sense.”
