Separate machete attacks in Toronto’s north end leave two injured as police search for suspects…


Toronto police are searching for suspects after two machete attacks in North Toronto.

A 17-year-old boy’s hands were cut in one attack just before 10 p.m. at Jane and Wilson.

Paramedics say the injuries are serious, but non-life-threatening.

The suspect is described as white, about five-feet tall, and last seen wearing grey sweat pants a black leather jacket and a black toque.

The circumstances surrounding the incident were not immediately clear, although police said they do not believe that the victim was targeted.

In another incident near Sheppard and Kenneth Avenue, paramedics reportedly treated an 18-year-old with a severed finger. The teen’s finger was later found in a parking lot.

Police reportedly couldn’t say whether there was a connection between the two attacks.
