Toronto police have released a new security camera image of a man wanted in connection with a stabbing in North York earlier this month.

On the evening of March 7 in the area of Dufferin Street and Lawrence Avenue West, police said a suspect approached a 33-year-old man, yelled at him and later stabbed him multiple times.

The victim suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to the hospital.

The suspect fled the scene on foot. Two days after the incident, police published security camera images of the wanted man in an effort to identify him.
