In what seems to be a never-ending saga of assaults occurring on the TTC, Toronto Police say a 16-year-old has been stabbed on a TTC bus in the area of Bloor Street West and Old Mill Trail.
The motive is currently unknown, however, police say the suspect was last seen running on Bloor Street West, described as medium build, in their 20s, wearing a blue mask and a black jacket with their hood up.

It’s already proven that TTC a has little/no intention of stepping up security and maybe they’ve given up. It’s time for new management.— Freakazoid! (@FreakazoidReal) January 25, 2023
