Police in Toronto asked a 46-year-old man to surrender after a 16-year-old girl and her mother were savagely attacked at the east end of the city.
Police said officers were called to an apartment complex in Scarborough around 6:00 p.m. on Friday. As soon as the police arrived, they found a 16-year-old girl with several stabs and cuts on her head, neck and shoulders. The 37-year-old teenage mother also suffered serious head injuries.
The teenager was rushed to the hospital in life-threatening conditions. He remained in intensive care, but his condition is now considered stable. The mother was also rushed to the hospital but was released, police told CTV Toronto.
The motive for the attack is still unknown. Police said the suspect had two young children with 37 years of casualties but was not related to teenagers.
The suspect was considered "armed and dangerous," and the police urged him to hire a lawyer and surrender.
"You will only run, and we want to finish this faster than later," Det. Jason Hillier said on Saturday at a press conference.
Hillier added that police were worried that the suspect might be "on the run."
"We don't really know where he is. He has cross-GTA relations, so he can be anywhere in our region, "he said.
In response to the incident, the police issued an arrest warrant for Harry Rajkumar, 46, from Toronto. He was searched for with two counts of assault with a weapon, two counts of aggravated attacks and one count of failures to obey.
The police described Rajkumar as high as 5 feet-11 inches, and weighed 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a red shirt with a white zip-up jacket and is believed to be driving a 2009 Toyota Tundra pickup truck.
