Toronto police say officers are looking to identify five suspects wanted after a 15-year-old boy was stabbed multiple times and robbed earlier this month.
Police said in a news release Wednesday that they were called to the area of Bay and Hagerman streets, just south of Dundas Street, at 12:13 a.m. on July 6 for reports of a stabbing.
Officers said the victim was walking in the area when he was approached by five men with whom he had an earlier verbal dispute.
The boy was allegedly attacked by the group, stabbed multiple times and robbed of personal items. He suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
