A man and a woman, both under 18 years old, were arrested in connection with the stabbing. There is no public safety concern, though the area is still cordoned off this morning as police investigate and collect evidence.
Mayor John Tory said he's "perplexed and disturbed" at the recent acts of violence in Toronto, which also included a fatal shooting near an elementary school in Brampton early this morning.
