TORONTO – Toronto police are urging a 20-year-old man to turn himself in following a deadly stabbing at Noble Park earlier this month.
Ton Quoc Hoang Ngo, a.k.a. Tommy Ngo, is wanted in connection with the murder of Russell Sahadeo on Sept. 6.
The 23-year-old victim was fatally stabbed after he and a friend were approached by two other men at a park near Jane Street and Eglinton Avenue.
Police said there was an argument and one of the men stabbed the victim in the chest. Both suspects fled the scene in a car.
A second suspect in the case, 21-year-old Marcus Richard Lee turned himself in on Sept. 9 and faces a charge of second-degree murder.
Sahadeo’s uncle says his nephew was enrolled in college to study business administration and was waiting for classes to start before his death.
He spoke on behalf of the family, “We’re doing what we can to carry on,” adding, “there’s nothing that can heal the profound grief that the family is currently experiencing.”
The uncle, who spoke on condition his name would not be revealed, insists his nephew was never involved in criminal activity and the murder was a shock to everyone who knew Sahadeo. He called Russell “kind, gentle, loving.”
As police continue to investigate, anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Steve Ryan at 647-801-6813, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
