Toronto police say they have arrested Cory Galea, the man wanted in connection with Wednesday’s "shoulder bump" stabbing in Yonge-Dundas Square.
Galea, accompanied by his lawyer, turned himself in at 52 Division at about 4:15 p.m. Thursday, police said.
He was arrested and now faces charges including attempted murder and aggravated assault.
Police allege Galea, 21, of no fixed address, and another suspect attacked a man who had bumped into them while walking through Yonge-Dundas Square. The victim was stabbed in the heart in the ensuing fight, and taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The other suspect was arrested shortly after the alleged incident, and is facing an attempted murder charge. Police released Galea's name and photo on Thursday morning.
Galea is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
