The third victim, a teenage boy, was taken to SickKids hospital with life-threatening injuries, paramedics said. Police later said his injuries were not life-threatening.

A bystander, Daanish, witnessed the stabbing and said he initially didn’t think it was real.

“It seemed like a joke at first, I think we all assumed that, but then when the guy fell down we realized this is serious and some of these guys gave CPR,” he said.

“One guy was bleeding pretty badly, the other guy also had stab wounds but wasn’t bleeding nearly as much.”

A police spokesperson told Global News Sunday morning there is no information on the suspect at this time. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 416-808-2100 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.
