TTC Subway Stabbing: Police Release Name of Accused, Victim Recovering in Hospital

Jennifer Pagliaro, The Star, February 28, 2013

Police have released the name of a 20-year-old man wanted in the subway stabbing of a 35-year-old man who was recovering in hospital Thursday.

Toronto man Cassim Celani Cummings is wanted for attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and failing to comply with probation.

On Wednesday around 10:20 p.m., police responded to a train near Davisville station after a call for a stabbing on the southbound Yonge St. line.

Police said a man was stabbed in the neck with a knife, which clipped an artery, in what appeared to be an unprovoked attack.

Staff Sgt. Matt Moyers said the victim was trying to dissuade the suspect from bothering other passengers on the train.

“It appears this guy was just being a jerk to people on the train,” Moyers said. He said the victim then stood up and asked the man to stop. “He was like, ‘Hey listen, enough’s enough,’” Moyers said. “‘C’mon man. Leave these people alone.’”

A passenger assistance alarm was activated and people aboard the train assisted the man as emergency crews rushed to the scene and transported the man to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

“He wants to sincerely thank everyone that came to his aid and helped him,” Sunnybrook spokesperson Laura Bristow said after speaking with the man, who requested his name not be released. “Right now he just wants people to focus on finding the guy.”

The man could be discharged later today, Bristow said.

Police said the suspect fled on foot from the train. They have released several surveillance photos showing a black male, thin build, wearing a black jacket with a hoodie and carrying a white plastic bag.

He is considered to be armed and dangerous and should not be approached, police said.

    Interfering with Spontaneous Diversity is White Masochism and Self Suicide.

    • Paleoconn

      The victim might have been coming to the defense of law-abiding, peaceful Whites. This type of Good Samaritan will always have my support and I’m happy people came to his aid, and possibly due to that he is recovering.

    • bigone4u

      Standing by and doing nothing is cowardly. Whites have been cowardly long enough. However, discretion is the better part of valor. Better have a knife or gun handy when confronting a savage.

      • Josey Wales

        Oh silly one, just how does one go about defending oneself in the lovely self-defense hating CanadaNorth? Guns? Oh, no no no, see we rounded them up YEARS ago from all those law-abiding type folks cause we didn’t want no more crime ya know ! Cause guns=crime, all good progressives knows that! And hey now, that’s a matter for the police, don’t cha know! Call 911 or whatever it is in the North and let the police handle these outta hand “youth”. Don’t be defending urself or anybody else that looks like you from your diversity “brothers” Dat be ray-ciss. Time for truth, segregation now !

        • ken

          With big cities that are mostly in Ontario and Quebec being ruined by imported black thuggery the idea will soon come to the few whites that are left to have to arm themselves with illegal handguns just like these two legged raccoons do so they can protect themselves and their family from them.

          They are left with no choice.

        • bigone4u

          I believe knives over a certain length are outlawed too. Government sure wants to create more crime victims. I guess a billy club or tire thumper might be a fashionable accessory to carry. Plus a keychain can of pepper spray. Of course, in some places those items are outlawed. Maybe its time for whites to ignore the law since natural law says everyone has the right to protect himself and his kin.

  • Ronald

    Mainstream media outlets never tire of promoting the idea that operators of “the underground railroad” who spirited “Blacks” off to Canada are heroes. One must wonder how they are regarded by Canadians, who are still suffering the effects to this very day?


    • Bud

      Very, very few of these blacks are descended from American slave runaways, the vast majority are products of racist colonialist genocide being waged against white Canada by militant leftists, just like everywhere else in the Western world. From this Wiki article:

      From 1871 to 1971 waxing and waning from 21,500 to 34, 400 blacks in Canada.

      By 1981 – 239,500 up 596%

      1991 – 504,300 up 110% (from ’81)

      2001 – 662,200 up 31%

      2011 – 783,795 up 18%

      Up more than 20 x in 40 years, from an insignificant number to a problem.

        Toronto has been pretty effectively ethically cleansed in the last 30
        years of its native inhabitants. Even in small towns in Ontario you can
        see all the effects of third-world immigration.

        The only ones who are are a bit more vocal against this sort of non-sense in Canada are the Quebecois.They’re all about the Pur Laine. I lived in Montreal for a year and it is still predominantly White, but if they keep letting in the Haitians, Sub-Saharans and North Africans that city will be ruined as well. They imitate the American blacks there and generally cause problems (surprise surprise). It seems though that the new provincial government there will be pushing for separation in the future and they want to leave certain undesirables behind and likely packing for Toronto or elsewhere.

        • NorthernWind

          I happen to live there. It is true that the rural Quebecois are very ethnically nationalist however they have been scammed by the Parti Quebecois. They vote for it because it’s the only party which presents itself as French Quebecois however, that party is far left. They have betrayed their constituency. They even proposed to remove the crucifix in the National Assembly because it might offend non-Christian “Quebecois”.

          There are two Quebec’s; urban Quebec which is multikulty, divorced from its history and French speaking and rural Quebec which is homogeneous proud of their history, and French. The PQ gets its support from the latter group but represents the former.

          • Alex

            I lived in Le Plateau for most of the time and the locals might have been leftist but like I said they were all about Pur Laine and very proud. They didn’t even really like the French-French and Belgian expats (a lot of them in Le Plateau). My wife is French-French and a lot of them were pretty cold to her. I could have sworn that they were actually defending the crucifix against those who didn’t want it (Muslims).

            I could have sworn that Charest defended the crucifix as well, but I do remember hearing about a small town having an issue with a crucifix in a town hall I believe.

            I’m guessing you live in the West Island.

    I spent my first night at the Oil Patch camp under the care of my older brothers best friend. Two guys got drunkenly into it. Me and another newbie stepped forward as peacemakers. Brothers friend grabbed me by the collar and pulled me back into line. The other guy got a rifle butt to the face for getting involved…. I never forgot that….. I may step in now and then but only to make war, not peace.

    • The__Bobster

      If you intend to step in at all, it’s best to allow the pugilists to whale the tar out of each other first. They’re easier to handle when they’re tired and injured.

    “It appears this guy was just being a jerk to people on the train,”
    Moyers said. He said the victim then stood up and asked the man to stop.
    “He was like, ‘Hey listen, enough’s enough,’” Moyers said. “‘C’mon man.
    Leave these people alone.’”

    Fine, but you’d better have a firearm before you coonfront an Afrovoodoo like that. They can go from zero to a category 5 chimpout in a matter of seconds.

    • whiteucleruckus

      I’m just speculating here but probably didn’t think he was in any danger because he honestly believes in the whole “race doesn’t matter” and “everybody is equal” philospohy. If he is one of those Canadian liberals he probably thinks it’s worse to be racist than it is to stab someone in the neck. Hopefully this is his awakening. If I were in that same situation, I would have called the police immediately. Since blacks are old enough to walk, they are taught that the police are bunch of racist White guys who are out to get them because of their skin color. I would, and have, used that fear and hate of the police against them. Get on your phone and make it obvious you are talking to the cops. They will run like they are trying to score a touchdown. And never ever intentionally get within arm’s reach of one of them.

  • fakeemail

    The samaritan was a fool to say anything and he was fool for saying something with a weak and plaintive tone.

    My weary eyes have taught me that only strength counts in this world; for good or for ill. The awful truth is that might *does* make right. Human beings are no damn good. We’re just animals. It’s just that some of us are more animal than others.

    • ye ol’ swampyankee

      That’s the hardcore truth. . .

  • John R

    Come on people. Lighten up. The poor black man was suffering from low self esteem, brought on by a heritage of slavery, Jim Crow, and living in a racist society. When someone told him to stop bothering people, he just snapped. He felt disrespected, humiliated, by the cruel, white world, that enslaved his ancestors….oh, wait. This happened in Canada! Oops. Okay, I’ll keep working on excuses…..

    • ken

      His mamma actually said that he is a good boy and she tried to get help for him but society failed him.

      See, it is not his fault.

        MmmmHmmmm, and he wuz an apespirini’ rapper and $#!T, an he done gibbed his laff to Jebuzz gnome sane.

      • jay11

        He was only trying to ‘mend’ white people for all their white priviledge! We need to honor him, call him a community activist hero and name a street or two after him. Don’t forget the cushy job as a diversity consultant to boot!

      • [Guest]

        His mother also noted that Cassim is an honor student, a gifted athlete, and an aspiring rap artist. It’s just that he’s recently begun to run with the wrong crowd.

        Sure, he was a little unruly on the train, and he stabbed some white man in the neck, but he’s about to turn his life around. He’s even talked of applying for a part-time job!

        All he needs is a second chance.

        • rebelcelt

          Honor student, athlete and rap star…wow multi talented thuggee is just one of many talents.

      If white liberals keep working on excuses for these sub-human snakes, they’ll start believing themselves to be the demonic creations of Yakub.

  • APaige

    Rosa Parks’ grand nephew? Black people have ‘issues’ with public transportation everywhere they live.

  • bigone4u

    The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous? All blacks should be considered armed and dangerous is more like it.

    Just look at that fro! Frokenstein. Frozilla.

    Where is Bernard Goetz when we need him?

  • kerrysmith

    Key phrase: “Wanted for…failing to comply with probation”. It would have been interesting to hear what his history was. Increasingly, I read ‘probation’ as ‘opportunity to reoffend’.

  • LastBastionOfHope

    So sick of blacks. I really am. Going in a time machine back to 1946 when white people had balls, told the truth, and blacks were actually better off as well.

    • LaSantaHermandad

      Well said. The truth is that they’re the ones who need to be afraid to be on OUR streets.

    “They have released several surveillance photos showing a black male, thin build, wearing a black jacket with a hoodie and carrying a white plastic bag.”

    Clearly this guy is innocent: A black youf in a”hoodie” and a white bag (probably Skittles). He meets all the necessary criteria for Sainthood.

  • Lou406

    Never turn your back on a Toronto Man.

  • LaSantaHermandad

    The passengers should have beaten him to death or used his knife on him. One less criminal mayate.

  • FourFooted_Messiah

    This is becoming more and more common. Toronto never used to be like this, even twenty or thirty years ago.

    Yet it’s amazing how many Torontonians deny that any change has happened. Oh well, they’re the ones still dumb enough to live there.

    Oh, and Amren, you seem to have missed the article about Toronto declaring itself a Sanctuary City. What that means is illegal immigrants of all stripes can claim benefits, etc (welfare being a city responsibility in Ontario) without having to show papers or anything. Unfortunately, it doesn’t mean the same thing it does in World of Warcraft – no fighting allowed.

    So yeah, expect Toronto to just get worse, really quickly.

    • ken

      On an other visit to Toronto I remember witnessing a trendy clothing store being swarmed and robbed by large crowd of black yoofs at the Eaton Center in 1989.

      These parasites waste no time in laying waste to their new home environment.

      • FourFooted_Messiah

        Ugh, well, I did live there before `89. And though the floodgates officially opened in 1992 or so, I think it was going on before that, yes.

        The sad thing is, we were sold King of Kensginton multiculturalism (Greeks, Italians, the occasional secular Turk, the assimilated Chinese.) We got something totally different.

        • ken

          Thanks to that covert Jesuit Pierre Trudeau the Floodgates opened up in 1971/72 and plane loads of mainly Jamaicans started to arrive.

          The social engineers started that human rights and the political correctness clap trap a year before to indoctrinated the native public to keep their mouth shut or else.

          They also built public housing like it was going out of style starting a few years before, in fact the city of Toronto is ringed with public housing like Regent Park etc, odd that there were always poor white families in Toronto that needed affordable housing but it only happened in a big way when blacks just started to infest the city like the city fathers already new that these folks love publicly funded housing and would live there in a generational fashion, unlike any other immigrant from before.

          There was also a new rule to mix in new public housing construction into middle class neighborhoods to spread the misery and blight around on purpose.

          The earliest wave of Jamaican immigrants of the early 70s were mostly fast tracked to waiting cushy government jobs as clerks and such, way ahead of any Canadian born whites.

          • Unperson

            Thanks to Pierre Trudeau the Floodgates opened up in 1971/72 and plane loads of mainly Jamaicans started to arrive.

            It was “mainly Jamaicans” because Trudeau was close personal friends with Jamaica’s mixed-race, hard-left, two-time Prime Minister Michael Manley:


            Manley developed close friendships with several foreign leaders, foremost of whom were Julius Nyerere of Tanzania, Olof Palme of Sweden, Pierre Trudeau of Canada and Fidel Castro of Cuba.

    True Story.

    I was visiting Toronto and a suit dressed very dark young black man sat next to me on the street car and regaled to me the story that he operates the largest chain of car dealerships in Canada and that he was really a billionaire with his business being bigger than Ford and GM combined and that he was actually Sicilian.

    These Bantu nut cases are a dime a dozen on the Toronto Transit System.

  • Hans Schneider

    Third world immigration produces third world problems and Canada is no diffferent.

  • Joe Sewell

    And to think Canadians allowed themselves to be disarmed by the closet communists – sad.

  • Fed Up

    Ah, yes. These fine people simply expressing themselves in the only way they know how.
    It’s a cultural thing, you know.

  • NorthernWind

    If only Canada allowed concealed carry. Instead we are unarmed and at the mercy of thugs like this. We aren’t even allowed to carry small mace cans. Nope, wouldn’t want to harm a criminal…

    When I saw the article on the National Post website, before even seeing any pictures, I guessed that the criminal would be from the diverse population of Toronto. I “guessed” right but it wasn’t really a guess now was it?

  • guest

    “He is considered to be armed and dangerous and should not be approached, police said.”

    And yet these are the same types of people we’re expected to integrate with and be tolerant to. And to point out this truth is seen as worse than the serious physical injuries that victim suffered from that criminal.

    Sounds like what the white guy in the movie ‘Falling Down’ said. Except the guy in the movie Falling Down had a bunch of guns.

    • Skincognito

      The victim/Samaritan should have said: “I’m a Canadian and you’re a sick a**hole.”
      We all know the best defense is a strong offense. I’ve confronted obnoxious blacks on busses in Detroit for their “freestyling” and other forms of noise pollution. No disrespect to this White victim, God bless him, but if you’re not ready to fight a functionally retarded racial alien, then shut up and read your paper, play with your phone, stare out the window, etc. As the photo above makes clear, they are unpredictable animals.

  • ken

    The strange part is that if you are white and take a subway ride in Toronto, just take a good look around in that crowded car and you will be very surprised to find that you are the only caucasian in that subway car.

  • [Guest]

    >>>He is considered to be armed and dangerous and should not be approached, police said.

    So the authorities are instructing peace-loving people to live in fear but do nothing. We’re to cower and run and leave things to them, the experts. But it’s the governmental authorities who infected us with this disease to begin with, and it’s the governmental authorities who have refused to treat the disease.

    Given that this one savage, Cassim Celani Cummings, represents a considerable chunk of the population, it’s hardly possible to avoid approaching or being approached by savagery.

    • ken

      They use these savages to terrorize the public and since every white person is suppose to tow the political correctness line by law then we are to grin and bear it, so they think.

      The dam will eventually break and all hell will break loose on these monsters and their enablers.

    I’m sorry the canadian person got stabbed….I encounter many canadians, both english and french speaking down here during tourist season…because canada is such a nice place canadians think everyone else is as nice as they are, and are often surprised when this turns out not to be the case. The assailant should be thrown in jail for at least 2 decades. Besides, he was only twenty…jim crow, colonialism and slavery had long been over with by the time he was born….I wonder where john engelman is to tell us that civilized places don’t need a 2nd amendment.

  • Joseph

    Just wait until a few years go by and the canucks, like us have cites filled with such diversity. They will be moving to the Dakotas and Montana in droves -but only for the “better weather”.
