Last week, officers attended a call at the Downtown BMW dealership near the Don Valley Parkway and Eastern Avenue after an accusation that an employee had tainted a water bottle with a noxious substance in a service area.

The victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries after taking a charcoal tablet purchased from a pharmacy, and checking into a hospital.

Investigators say the two men at the centre of the alleged incident are shown on a security cam taking a bottle from a service area and later placing it back in the same service area.

Rahim Jaffer, 34, has also been charged with one count of administering a noxious substance.
