A TTC driver was stabbed in the face with a toothbrush early Monday morning in Toronto’s west end.

A male passenger and the driver got into an argument on a bus and the passenger punctured the driver’s cheek.

The stabbing happened around 3:45 a.m. on Islington Avenue south of Dixon Road near Winnipeg Road.

Toronto police say the driver had minor injuries and was taken to a hospital.

The driver was also involved in a bus crash, police say.

Police say the suspect is the same one who stabbed a man with an unknown object in Spadina Station’s pedestrian tunnel around 4 p.m. on Sunday.

He has been identified as Liam Mitchell McCallum, 22, of no fixed address. He’s described as a white man of average height and weight with brown shoulder-length hair. He 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.
