Police say they’re looking for a man who allegedly tried to light people’s clothes on fire in a Toronto subway station on Tuesday.
In a news release issued Wednesday, police said they were called to Ossington Station around 2 p.m. for an “unknown trouble.”
A man was in the station and approached three different people with a lighter and tried to light their clothes on fire, police said.
One person suffered minor injuries.
Police described the man as being in his 20s with a thin build and said he was wearing a black “trucker-style” baseball hat with a white design on the front, a purple T-shirt with black sleeves, black jeans, and black and white shoes. He was reportedly carrying a grey sweater and grey backpack with orange stitching.
Investigators released a security image in the hope that someone may be able to assist in identifying the suspect.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-1400 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.
