The Toronto police homicide unit is investigating after a woman was stabbed to death in the financial district area of Toronto’s PATH system on Wednesday.

Police responded to a call in the PATH food court at the concourse level of King and Bay Streets, in Commerce Court, around 7 p.m.

A 51-year-old woman was found with stab wounds in life-threatening condition. Paramedics began life-saving procedures but the victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Police have identified her as Rae Cara Carrington, from Toronto.

According to investigators, a male suspect fled on foot but they did not find a weapon at the scene.

A witness told CityNews the suspect had a long knife and the victim was behind the counter at one of the eateries.

Police describe the suspect as a white man between 20 and 30 years old, five feet eight to five feet nine inches tall, with dark hair and facial hair. He was last seen wearing a black or dark hoodie with a white T-shirt, dark pants and dark shoes.

Inspector Anthony Paoletta said investigators believe that this was a targeted attack but the relationship between the victim and the suspect is not known at this time. No one else was injured and police do not believe there are any other suspects at this time.

Paoletta added that the food court was crowded at the time of the stabbing and police are interviewing several witnesses. Security footage is also being reviewed from the multiple cameras in the area.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.

The stabbing is not far from where Rosemarie Junor was fatally stabbed in 2015 near a Shoppers Drug Mart by Rohinie Bisesar, who was found not criminally responsible for the attack last year.
