Man stabbed near Davisville station
A man was stabbed aboard a TTC subway train heading southbound between Eglinton and Davisville stations on Wednesday night.
680 News reports the victim is a 34-year-old Barrie, Ont. man, who suffered serious, but not life-threatening injuries. The radio station writes the incident took place at around 10:30 p.m., and a search for a suspect is underway.
The alleged suspect reportedly began harassing other passengers after boarding the train at Eglinton station. The victim, who did not behave in a confrontational manner, stood up in front of the suspect and was slashed across the throat. 680 News reports the police are calling this an unprovoked attack.
Soon, the TTC Passenger Assistance Alarm was activated, and the suspect exited the train at Davisville station. Video of the attack was captured aboard the new subway car, and the suspect is described as a thin black male, between the ages of 30 and 32, who stands at around 6’0 to 6’2.
Toronto’s record snowfall
Torontonians will face another slow commute on Thursday morning, as a slow-moving, record-breaking storm system wraps up its run.
Environment Canada states the city broke a snowfall record for Feb. 27. Over 12.4 centimetres of wet snow fell at Pearson International Airport on Wednesday, handily beating the original 1967 record of 7.1 centimetres.
680 News reports city officials are asking Torontonians to help keep the weather-centric catch basins open, and avoid shovelling wet snow onto the roads.
A third X-Files movie?
The truth is out there? X-Files star David Duchovny stopped by the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Wednesday, and encouraged the sci-fi series’ fans to start or continue writing letters to FOX asking for a third feature film adaptation.
“You could wheel me out, I’ll play Fox Mulder forever,” said the Californication star, to Leno. “[Creator] Chris Carter and [co-star] Gillian Anderson and I, we’re always on board.”
The X-Files aired on FOX from 1993 to 2002, resulting in two movies. The Hollywood Reporter writes 1998’s The X-Files: Fight the Future grossed nearly $189-million worldwide, but its 2008 sequel, I Want to Believe, disappointed, earning just $68-million.
However, the show has always maintained a strong cult following, prompting Duchovny to tell the audience, “You want to write FOX and get ‘em going.”
