Toronto police say a 31-year-old woman has died and an injured man has been taken into custody after a stabbing at a business Wednesday afternoon.
Emergency crews were called to Jolly Bar and Restaurant on Bloor Street West, near Ossington Avenue, just after 5 p.m. with reports of a disturbance.
Police said when officers arrived, the woman was found without vital signs. She was later pronounced dead at the scene.
The man was taken to St. Michael’s Hospital for surgery in serious, but non-life-threatening condition.
Homicide Squad Det. Paul Worden told Global News the woman and the man involved were known to each other.
“Based on the investigation so far, the male is going to be charged with the murder of the female,” he said Wednesday evening, adding witnesses were still being interviewed.
Anyone with information was asked to call police at 416-808-7400.
