“We have reason to believe that the suspect would be familiar with the Bloor Street and Yonge Street area, as well as the Dundas Street and Parliament Street areas of the city,” he said.

Choe said the suspect was not a resident of the building. When asked about motive, he said investigators are “leaving that open.”

The suspect is described as five feet ten inches, medium build, wearing a black jacket, dark pants and twisted braided black hair.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 416-808-7400 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.
