Two police officers rushed to hospital after being attacked in Etobicoke

Two police officers have been rushed to hospital via emergency run after they were attacked by a knife-wielding man while conducting a missing person investigation at a rooming house in Etobicoke.

Chief James Ramer says that Toronto police were contacted by their counterparts in Peel on Monday night after they located some blood in the missing person’s apartment, which is located near Royal York Road and Lawrence Avenue.

Ramer said that officers attended the address last night and then returned this morning to conduct a search of the premises. He said that the officers had spent about 90 minutes searching the home and speaking with tenants when a man came out of one of the rooms, produced a knife and “immediately attacked” them, without uttering a word.

Ramer said that police were eventually able to restrain the man with the help of a conducted energy weapon. He sustained minor injuries during the course of the arrest and was also taken to hospital.

It is not immediately clear what charges he will face.

Ramer said that a sergeant sustained “two serious slash wounds” as a result of the attack while a junior officer sustained minor injuries.

“It is serious. The officer with minor injuries only has a year on the job. It affects everybody,” Ramer said of the incident. “It is a very significant event.”
