21-year-old woman charged for stabbing her University of Toronto professor


A 21-year-old woman is facing several charges, including aggravated assault, in connection with the stabbing of a professor at the University of Toronto.

Police allege a woman walked into the 42-year-old man’s office on Wednesday afternoon and after a brief conversation, pulled out a
knife and began slashing at him.

Const. Victor Kwong says officers received a report around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday regarding the assault at the school’s downtown campus (at 22 Russell Street).

They say the man was able to eventually hold the woman down.

Others who heard the commotion came to his assistance and held the woman for police, who arrested her.

The man was treated in hospital for his wounds.

The incident happened just days into the first week of the university’s school year.

Police say a female suspect has been arrested after they got a call about a professor stabbed by a student at the University of Toronto.
