Toronto police have identified the suspect as Moses Lewis, 25. However, he is still at-large.

Police say he will be charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, and two counts of refusing to comply with his release from jail.

The victim was severely injured and hospitalized. He is now listed as stable. The victim has not been named and is only described as a male in his thirties.

It is unclear what he was originally in jail for.

  • the victim and suspect were travelling on board a TTC subway train
