Toronto police say a 46-year-old man was stabbed by another man in a “random, unprovoked attack” in Spadina Station’s pedestrian tunnel on Sunday.

Officers responded to a call at Spadina Station around 4 p.m. The man was stabbed from behind with an unknown object.

The victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say the suspect has been identified as Liam Mitchell McCallum, 22, of no fixed address. He’s described a white man of average height and weight with brown shoulder-length hair.┬áHe was wearing a camouflage baseball hat, white and blue ‘Blue Jays’ jersey, camouflage shorts, brown shoes, a wristband on his left wrist and a watch on his right wrist.

Police said on Monday that the same suspect is wanted for another separete stabbing, this time on a TTC bus at Islington Avenue and Dixon Road, nearly 12 hours later. In that incident, the man stabbed a bus driver in the face with a toothbrush just before 4 a.m. Monday.

He’s believed to be violent, armed and dangerous. If you do see the suspect, you are asked not to approach him and call 9-1-1.

Streetcars were diverted and trains were bypassing the station as police investigated, but regular service has since resumed.
