Social worker stabbed at interim housing apartment, suspect arrested

BT Toronto | posted Wednesday, Aug 5th, 2020

A City of Toronto social worker is recovering in hospital after she was stabbed on Tuesday while on shift at an interim housing apartment in midtown.

Police responded to a call for a stabbing on Broadway Avenue, near Yonge Street, around 7 p.m.

The victim was rushed to a trauma centre with serious but not life-threatening injuries.

The suspect, a 45-year-old man believed to be a client of the program, was taken into custody by police.

The building currently houses 150 clients until September, when it’s set to be redeveloped.

The City said they’re conducting a full review of the incident as they work with Toronto police.
