Toronto police have identified a man wanted in two different stabbings that happened on Sunday, one at Spadina station and the other on a TTC bus near Islington.

Officers say the first stabbing occurred in the pedestrian tunnel at the Spadina station at around 4 p.m.

A 46-year-old suffered non-life threatening injuries when he was attacked from behind and stabbed with an unknown object.

The second stabbing happened just before 4 a.m. on Monday after the man allegedly stabbed a TTC bus driver in the Islington Avenue and Dixon Road area at Winnipeg Avenue.

Police say the man got into a verbal argument with the driver before breaking the head off a toothbrush and stabbing the driver in the cheek.

He fled the scene, running south on Islington.

The suspect has been identified as Liam Mitchell McCallum, 22, of no fixed address.

He is described as thin built with brown shoulder-length hair. He was last seen wearing a camouflage baseball hat, white and blue ‘Blue Jays’ jersey, camouflage shorts and brown shoes. He has tattoos on both hands and was wearing two large rings on his right hand.

He is believed to be violent, armed and dangerous. If seen, police are warning the public not to approach him and call 9-1-1 immediately.
