Toronto police reveal photo of man wanted in sexual assault case
On September 6, Toronto Police Service released security footage of a man wanted in a Sexual Assault investigation.
The case is from August 12. Officers say that at around 6:44 p.m. a woman was assaulted in the Danforth Road and Eglinton Avenue East area.
Toronto Police have confirmed that a two-and-a-half-year-old has died after she was struck by a falling air conditioner.
Const. Caroline de Kloet of the Toronto Police said the young girl died in hospital following the strike on Monday outside an east-end apartment building, after the A.C. unit fell eight stories onto her.
De Kloet told media the toddler was with others when she was struck, but information surrounding who they were has yet to be released, or whether or not the family of the girl live within the same area.
De Kloet also said a stroller was at the site of the crime, but it’s not known if the girl was in it.
The spokeswoman said the air conditioner was in a window before it fell.
Neighbours told the Toronto Sun that they were distraught over the horrible incident.
“I was back there twice yesterday doing my recycling,” said one resident named Nicole.
“It could have been me.”
“It could have been anyone,” said another tenant.
“Someone out walking their dog or bringing in groceries.”
“It’s a terrible tragedy,” said De Kloet. “From the interviews that investigators have done, they’ve come to the conclusion that there won’t be any criminal charges.”
Well Toronto, we hope you like snow. Because as many of you have surely noticed by now, you’ve got a lot of it!
The Toronto area was subjected to record-breaking early snowfalls that may leave commuters in a temporary daze, as sidewalks and roads have quickly become snowy in a hurry.
Monday morning saw a winter weather travel advisory from Environment Canada, which has since been lifted, but was nonetheless pounded by snow overnight.
Toronto’s Pearson airport was blanketed by nearly 14 centimetres of snow, over four times the previous record set in 1983.
According to 680 NEWS meteorologist Jill Taylor, windchill will “make it feel like -15 C on Tuesday and will dip further to -22 overnight.”
The cenotaph that stands outside Toronto’s Old City Hall has been vandalized with spray paint. The inscription the spray paint made out, was “ye broke faith.”
This comes less than 24 hours after Remembrance Day.
The Toronto police have been investigating the vandalism since 7:00 in the morning.
The writing itself bears resemblance to the poem “In Flanders Fields, by the Canadain poet John McCrae. In the last stanza, McCrae writes “the torch; be yours to hold it high, If ye break faith with us who die.”
Although the culprit and their intentions remain unclear, the message is evidence that there is a message behind this vandalism.
Toronto Police have released camera images of a man who allegedly threw an 87-year-old woman to the ground during a robbery.
According to Police, the 87-year-old was walking on Brunswick Avenue, south of Bloor Street West, around 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 14 when she was attacked by the man and robbed.
The suspect has been described as six-feet-tall with a thin build.
He was last seen wearing a dark toque, a two-toned hooded sweater, dark pants, dark shoes and was carrying a white bag.
Anyone with information is being asked to contact police at 416-808-1400 or to reach out to Crime Stoppers anonymously.
