Toronto police are searching for a suspect after a woman was stabbed in the Lawrence Park area Saturday afternoon in what's believed to be a random attack.

Police say the woman called them herself around 12:30 p.m. after the violent encounter at Weybourne Crescent and Dinnick Crescent, and said she described the incident as "random."

The woman made her own way to hospital where she was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, police say.

Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook says there is an "elevated concern" for the safety of residents in the area and that police are encouraging people to be aware of their surroundings.

Investigators are now looking for a suspect in his 20s, described as white, about 5'7", skinny, with a thin moustache and scruffy hair, wearing a black hoodie.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
