York Regional Police have two people in custody following a stabbing incident in Markham.

Police say they were called to a Tim Hortons on Markham Road just north of Denison Street around 8:30 p.m. for what was initially termed a “weapon’s incident.”

When they arrived they discovered one man, believed to be in his 20s, suffering from “serious” stab wounds. He was transported to a Toronto trauma centre.

After they began canvassing the area, police discovered a second victim suffering from stab wounds a short distance away from the restaurant. He was transported to a local hospital, however, the extent of his injuries is not known.

Two people have been taken into custody but police have yet to determine what exactly their roles were in the incident. Police have not revealed the ages or genders of the two.

It’s not know if there are any other outstanding suspects at this time.

Police are asking anyone who may have been at the Tim Hortons or in the area at the time of the stabbing to contact them.
