Police have released the name of the man who died from stab wounds suffered at a frat house party on Halloween night while upgrading charges against a 19-year-old man in connection with the incident.
Firdous Nabizada, 19, of Toronto was among three people stabbed after an altercation broke out at a fraternity house on Madison Avenue in the Annex just after midnight on Friday.
Police say one of the party-goers who was ejected from the party after getting into a previous altercation and producing a knife attempted to re-enter the house. While others tried to calm him down, the suspect produced another knife and randomly attacked other individuals in line who were also trying to get into the party.
Nabizada was one of the victims stabbed and with the help of friends was taken to a nearby hospital with critical injuries. He was pronounced dead on Saturday night.
Jacob Alves, 19, of no fixed address who was arrested on the evening of the attack has now been charged with second-degree murder. He is scheduled to appear in court on Monday morning.
A 15-year-old girl from Richmond Hill who cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act is facing three counts of aggravated assault, three counts of assault with a weapon, one count of attempted murder and weapons dangerous.
Police say they want to speak with anyone who was at the party and may have taken photos or video as well as anyone else who may have been in the area at the time of the incident.
