WATCH ABOVE: Toronto police are investigating the city’s latest homicide at an adult massage parlour in Downsview. A woman died, another was badly hurt and a teenage boy was injured. As Caryn Lieberman reports, police said there is no risk to public safety.

Toronto police say a woman has died and two others have been injured after a daylight stabbing in the city’s north end Monday afternoon.

Emergency crews were called to Crown Spa on Dufferin Street, between Wilson Avenue and Highway 401, at around 12:40 p.m. for reports of a stabbing.

“[Callers] were saying they had a female outside, that she was covered in blood, and also a male was lying outside of the premise,” Insp. Darren Alldrit told reporters Monday afternoon, adding it’s believed the injuries happened inside the business.

Toronto paramedics rushed a man and a woman to a trauma centre.

Alldrit said the man was in life-threatening condition and the woman was in serious, but non-life-threatening condition, adding both were treated for “laceration-type injuries.”

He said a weapon was found outside of the business.

The homicide squad was called in to investigate the circumstances leading up to the stabbing.

Alldrit said investigators were still trying to determine the roles of those involved. He said no one is in custody as of Monday afternoon in relation to the stabbings, but went on to say there is “no concern for public safety right now.”
