Toronto police are searching for a suspect who they say broke into a home in Scarborough and stabbed the homeowner.

Police were called to Horfield Avenue and Randall Crescent, near McCowan and Kingston roads, around noon on Tuesday.

Police say when the victim entered his house, he found an unknown man inside.

The homeowner confronted the suspect and was stabbed in the leg.

The victim’s injuries are serious but not considered life-threatening. He was found a short distance away from his home.

The intruder was also injured during the confrontation. He ran from the house, but evidence at the scene suggests he is bleeding heavily.

Police officers are now searching the area for the suspect.

Correction: An earlier version of the story said the suspect was found with a stab wound.

Lucky it wasn’t the other way around because the homeowner would probably be in jail by now.

Castle law is needed in Canada.
