Police are looking for a Toronto man following last weekend’s fatal stabbing amid the Nuit Blanche festivities. 

Emanuel Lozada, 22, is wanted for second-degree murder, police at 52 Division said Tuesday afternoon, in connection with the death of 19-year-old Rameez Khalid.

He is described as about five feet, eight inches tall, 180 pounds, with thin, medium-length brown hair. Police did not provide a photo or sketch. 

Police are also looking for two other men — known only by the nicknames Yoda and Munchies — as persons of interest in the case. 

Khalid was stabbed at around 2 a.m. on Sunday on Richmond Street near York Street, in front of the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. 

He and a group of friends were earlier at a "pop-up rave" near the intersection of Queen Street West and University Avenue, said police, where they were involved in an altercation with another group. The fight was broken up, after which Khalid and a friend walked south and then east on Richmond. On Richmond they encountered another eastbound group — it is unclear if they were followed from the rave, police say — and a second conflict erupted, during which Khalid was stabbed. 

He was transported to hospital, but pronounced dead on arrival. 

Anyone who sees Lozada is asked to call 911. Anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts, or other information, is asked to contact the police at (416) 808-7400, or Crime Stoppers at (416) 222-TIPS (8477). Police continue to sort through video footage and other evidence. 

Hundreds of thousands of people were downtown on Saturday night for the annual dusk-to-dawn Nuit Blanche art festival. It remains unclear if the stabbing had any connection to the festival.
