    This hit close to home as I walk by Maple Leaf Gardens almost every day Initially I thought that this may have been a Jihad attack but I see from the latest reports that the suspect is in his 60's and has an Irish surname so it doesn't look to be ISIS related

    Glad everyone is more or less ok, never mind the possible scars both mental and physical, after this guy allegedly attacked SIX people!

    "The man attacked six people, stabbing four, around 8:30 a.m. in the area of Church and Carlton streets.

    All four victims, ranging in age from 18 to 48 years-old, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

    Police say the man was spotted in the area carrying a knife before he started lashing out at passers-by.

    An 18-year-old man was stabbed in the stomach, then the suspect started yelling at a 45-year-old man who was jogging by before stabbing him above the kidneys.

    The man then stabbed a 19-year-old woman in the ribs, tried to stab two others who escaped, then stabbed a 28-year-old woman in the chest."
