Eight teenage girls, three just 13 years old, are facing murder charges, accused of fatally stabbing a 59-year-old man in downtown Toronto in what police described as a “swarming” attack.
The teenage suspects were arrested shortly after the victim was found on a street in Canada’s largest city suffering from multiple stab wounds and was later pronounced dead at a hospital, Detective Sgt. Terry Browne said.
“I wouldn’t describe them as a gang at this point, but what they are alleged to have occurred that evening would be consistent with what we traditionally call a swarming, or a swarming-type behavior,” Browne said at a news conference on Tuesday.
That wasn’t very Canadian of them. Good thing that Fidel Trudeau is focusing on guns rather than crime.
