York Regional Police have issued an arrest warrant for a suspect sought after a 22-year-old man was killed and a 27-year-old man was hospitalized in a double stabbing in Vaughan late Wednesday night.
Nema Mansouri, 28, of Toronto, is sought on charges of second-degree murder and attempted murder.
Police told CP24 the victims were stabbed during a dispute on Colombo Crescent, near Jane Street and Teston Road, at about 11:50 p.m.
Officers were initially responding to a weapon call, but before they arrived two men were stabbed.
One victim was found on the street without vital signs, while the second was found in a front yard.
Both men were rushed to Sunnybrook hospital in Toronto, where 22-year-old Vaughan resident Muzaffar Goraya was pronounced dead. The 27 year old is in serious but stable condition.
It's believed one was stabbed in the abdomen, while the other suffered a stab wound to the chest.
Because the fight occurred on a residential street, police believe there may be witnesses.
“There’s a good possibility people might have heard something if their windows were open," said police spokeswoman Const. Rebecca Boyd.
Anyone with information is asked to call homicide detectives at 1-866-287-5025 or 905-773-1221 ext. 7865, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
Charge laid in July homicide
Meanwhile, York Regional Police have charged a man with second-degree murder in the death of 29-year-old Evan Gorgees.
Gorgees, a Toronto resident, was fatally stabbed in a fight that occurred in a parking lot outside a Vaughan nightclub on July 22.
People involved in the fight were patrons of the Al-Finjan nightclub, police said.
Investigators arrested 48-year-old Azize Sepan of Vaughan on Wednesday and charged him with second-degree murder.
