Jonathan D. Halevi reports at CIJNEWS.com that a 56-year-old man was attacked by three men in a dispute allegedly involving the victim's "Infidel" jacket patch.
On Sunday, September 20, 2015 at 11:18pm, CP24 dryly reported that “a man in his 50\s is in serious condition in a hospital after he was stabbed multiple times in Scarborough on Sunday night.”
According to the Police, “the man was stabbed in the area of Danforth Road and St. Clair Avenue East, just after 10 p.m. Sunday” and “several suspects were seen fleeing the area on foot.”
CP24 also quoted the Paramedics who said that “the man was rushed to the hospital trauma centre for treatment. He suffered multiple stab wounds.”
Since then the Police has not provided any further details about the motive of the stabbing attack or the identity of the perpetrators.
On October 29, CIJNews contacted police, asking if they were treating the stabbing "as a hate crime/terrorist attack/criminal attack":
