The Toronto Police Service has made an arrest in connection with yet another random attack on the TTC, an incident that adds to what has been a growing trend and cause for concern this month.
Police said on Monday, December 19 that a woman randomly attacked six people on the subway during one of the busiest times of the morning commute, between 9 and 9:30 a.m.
31-year-old Amina Hassan, of Toronto, is now facing several charges including assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm and breach of probation.
One person on Reddit claimed their friend was on the train and that someone “threw a bottle, picked it up, and smashed it in a woman’s face. There was a lot of blood and they evacuated everyone.”
Aside from the suspect being charged with assault with a weapon, those details have not been confirmed by police, but they have said they’re concerned there could be more victims.
Monday’s random attack follows a handful of incidents of unprovoked violence in Toronto throughout the beginning of December.
Two other attacks happened on the TTC, and in one of them, a woman who did not know her attacker was stabbed to death.
