Nearly two years after a Toronto man was stabbed to death in Scarborough, a suspect has been arrested at Pearson International Airport.
On the afternoon of Sept. 12, 2015, police found 56-year-old Bevis Larmond on the ground near an apartment building on Lawrence Avenue East near Galloway Road. Police said Larmond had been stabbed in the chest. He was rushed to hospital where he later died.
Larmond had been socializing with some friends and left to go to the store on his bicycle when he was attacked.
Dalvin Lewis, now 49, was identified as a suspect and a warrant was issued. Police believed he may have fled the country.
According to police, Lewis was born in Haddo, Jamaica and has strong ties to the Montego Bay community.
“It’s believed he’s currently hiding in Jamaica,” Det. Shannon Dawson said in a statement last month. “Anyone who may be assisting Dalvin Lewis, or has assisted him, will be held accountable and may be arrested for accessory after the fact to the murder.”
On Thursday, Lewis was arrested at Pearson and was charged with first-degree murder.
There has been no word on a possible motive for the attack.
