Police probe possible terror link after attack at military centre

Two uniformed Canadian Forces members were attacked by a knife in Toronto


 

TORONTO – Toronto police are looking into whether a double stabbing at a military recruitment centre could be linked to terrorist activity.

Police Chief Mark Saunders says a man walked into the centre (near Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue) around 3:30 p.m. Monday, pulled out a knife and attacked a uniformed Canadian Forces member.

Saunders says others were able to take down the suspect but a second Canadian Forces member was stabbed in the process. The injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

He says the suspect made unspecified comments that led police to look into a possible terror connection.

RCMP and CSIS have also been contacted.

Saunders says charges against the 27-year-old are pending.
