Police say they have arrested a 49-year-old man after a homicide in Toronto's west end Monday morning.
Emergency crews were called to the scene on Hertford Avenue near Eglinton Avenue West and Black Creek Drive around 6:30 a.m.
Initially, it was for a medical call involving an elderly man, said Const. Caroline de Kloet, a spokesperson for the Toronto Police Service. Paramedics arrived and treated the victim.
"We found a man in his 70s suffering from grievous injuries," Det. Andy Singh told reporters, adding the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
After further investigation officers determined it was a homicide.
Police have identified the victim as Wilfred Kent Truman, 77.
Singh confirmed that it was the victim's wife who called 911. Police were searching for a male suspect dressed all in black. Singh said he was believed to have fled the scene toward a ravine close by.
Police later issued a statement Monday afternoon saying that the suspect was arrested. He is scheduled to make an appearance in court tomorrow morning.
