Police later concluded the victim had been drinking, and that he had gotten into an altercation with a group of people in a bar in the area. Police said the man then left the bar and may have gotten into another altercation with the same group of people.

The victim was then robbed and then lost consciousness, police said.

When he regained consciousness, officers say he then boarded the TTC bus.

The investigation is ongoing and there are no suspect details at this time.
