Toronto police are looking for a second suspect in connection with a stabbing last weekend that left a 23-year-old dead.

Police say Marcus Richard Lee, 21, is wanted for second-degree murder in the case.

Russell Sahadeo died in hospital after he was stabbed in the stomach early Sunday morning in Noble Park, near Jane Street and Eglinton Avenue West.

Police say Sahadeo was with friends at the park when they were approached by two men and a fight broke out. Sahadeo was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries, but died there.

On Monday, police identified Ton Quoc Hoang Ngo, 20, of Toronto as a suspect and said he was wanted for second-degree murder.

Police are urging anyone who sees either man not to approach him and contact 911 instead.

Sahadeo's death is being considered the 36th homicide of the year in Toronto.
