Toronto police say they have charged a 73-year-old man in connection with a homicide investigation into the death of a 72-year-old man in Etobicoke.
Emergency crews were called to Royal York Road, just south of Evans Avenue, at around 6:22 p.m. Tuesday.
When officers arrived, they found a man with obvious signs of trauma and no vital signs, police said.
Police said the man, identified by investigators as 72-year-old Djuro Orlovic, succumbed to his injuries and died at the scene.
A post-mortem examination is scheduled for Thursday to determine the exact cause of death.
Officers arrested 73-year-old Janusz Rusin, of Toronto. Rusin has been charged with second-degree murder.
Police said they are looking to speak to anyone with information on the whereabouts and movements of Rusin in the days prior to this incident.
This is Toronto’s 23rd homicide of the year.
