A teenage boy is dead after he was stabbed outside a mall in the city’s west end on Friday.

Emergency crews were called to the parking lot of Galleria Mall at Dufferin and Dupont streets just before 12:30 a.m.

He was rushed to hospital where he later died.

Police say the teen was stabbed behind the mall. He was found near a clothes donation bin.

Paramedics initially said the boy was 16 years old. However, police say they don’t know the victim’s age because he wasn’t carried any identification on him.

A male and female were arrested, police say. Their ages are not known, and police have not said what charges they are facing.

It was one of four stabbings that took place in the GTA in the past 12 hours.
