Toronto police have released security camera images of a man wanted in connection with a stabbing at the Eaton Centre on Monday — which occurred on the same day of the Raptors victory parade and fan rally.

Police said they were called to the area of Yonge and Dundas streets around 2 p.m. for two stabbings in the Eaton Centre.

In one of those stabbings, police say a man got into an argument with a group of men on the street. He then stabbed three men and a boy.

The victims remain in serious condition in hospital.

Police said the suspect is in his 20s and has a medium build. At the time, he was wearing a black sweater with a red and yellow design, black pants, and a black head covering. Police released a security photo of the man on Wednesday, included in this story.

He is believed to be armed, violent and dangerous.

In another stabbing, there was one victim with non life-threatening injuries. Police are investigating that stabbing separately and there has been no suspect information released.

It is not clear if the stabbings were connected to the Raptors celebrations.
