16 year old Gabriel Magalhaes has died after being stabbed on the TTC on Saturday night. It’s the latest shocking attack that’s become an alarming trend on Toronto’s public transit system.
According to Toronto Police, Magalhaes was stabbed just before 9 p.m. while sitting on a bench on the lower level of Keele subway station.
The alleged suspect, a 22-year-old man experiencing homelessness identified as Jordan O’Brien-Tobin, approached Magalhaes and stabbed him in what was is said to be an unprovoked attack.
The suspect and victim are said not to have known each other.
Magalhaes was transported to hospital where he later died of his injuries.
O’Brien-Tobin has been charged by Toronto Police with First Degree Murder and was scheduled to appear in court earlier on Sunday.
