"Be aware of your surroundings": Toronto police probing fatal stabbings in "very close proximity"

CA, 15 Sep 2020
Toronto police investigators say they’re continuing to probe the circumstances surrounding two recent fatal stabbings in the city’s west end, encouraging residents to be extra cautious of anything suspicious.

“I don’t want to raise any fear or any panic. I just want people to be aware this is something that we’re looking at — the possibility these are connected,” Insp. Hank Idsinga told reporters Monday afternoon, adding all potential motives are being investigated.

“Both victims were stabbed and the incidents occurred in very close proximity to each other.”

The comments come two days after 58-year-old Mohamed-Aslim Zafis, a volunteer caretaker at IMO Mosque on Rexdale Boulevard near Islington Avenue, was stabbed at the mosque.

Meanwhile, on Sept. 7 just after 7 a.m., police said a jogger discovered the body of 39-year-old Rampreet (Peter) Singh off of the West Humber Trail underneath Highway 27 and near Humber College Boulevard.
