Toronto - Police are looking for suspects related to a stabbing in
Toronto. A cab driver was stabbed in the stomach in the Blake Street
and Strathcona Avenue area Thursday night.
When a man blocked the path of a taxi and started cussing the cabbie
one evening last week the driver left his cab to deal with the
situation. Two other men rushed in to attack the driver. "One of the
three men involved with the incident pulled a knife on the cab driver,
stabbing him in the stomach," said Constable Tony Vella of the Toronto
Police. The driver was taken to hospital with life-threatening
injuries after the suspects fled the area. One of the suspects is
