TORONTO — Police are investigating two more incidents of alleged violence on Toronto's public transit system, both of which occurred Friday in the city's east end.
In the first, five boys between the ages of 12 and 15 are facing multiple charges after someone was allegedly stabbed at Kennedy Subway Station.
Police say six people got into a fight on the station's southbound platform and the victim suffered two stab wounds.
The boys were arrested a short time later and are all facing charges including aggravated assault and assault with a weapon.
Police say the second incident earlier in the day saw a man placed in a chokehold while riding the bus at nearby Kennedy Road and Shepherd Avenue East, allegedly in an unprovoked attack.
Police say they're still searching for the suspect in that case.
