Toronto is under the influence of the mysterious murder of a 59-year-old man that took place in downtown Canada on Saturday night. The victim was suddenly attacked by eight teenage girls who had met each other for the first time that day. The police are completely in the dark. “We do not know how or why they met that night,” the police said in a statement.

The fifty-year-old man, identified as Kenny, was out smoking a cigarette with a fellow resident of a homeless shelter in Toronto on Saturday night. Eight girls, ages 13 to 16, passed by and asked for alcohol from their life partner. When the woman was unwilling or unable to give it up, the girls persisted and began to bully her as well. The guy stood up to her and tried to calm the girls down. “I tell them to leave me alone and protect me,” the woman told CBC Toronto.
The situation quickly got out of control. The aggressive girls pushed the guy and started kicking and hitting. They pulled out a knife and stabbed the man several times. Meanwhile, the accomplice ran away, seeking help. He was bleeding. I think they stabbed him in the stomach with a knife.
One of the girls ran after the woman, but the prisoner was able to escape. When she returned, she saw the man lying on the ground. The girls were nowhere to be seen. Emergency services arrived at the scene and immediately took the man to hospital, where he died a few hours later.
The police quickly caught the girls. Still a big question mark as to why they attacked and stabbed the man to death. Girls come from different parts of the city. According to the police, they were going to meet each other on the same day through social media. The entire attack, in which the girls dove on their victim like a swarm of bees, lasted, according to police, three minutes.
The deceased victim, whose full name has not been released, was living in a homeless shelter at the time of the attack. “He has a very supportive family, so I wouldn’t necessarily call him homeless. He may have had bad luck lately,” police detective Terry Brown suspects. In the area, Kenny was known as a kind and generous man. “He was a kind-hearted person. Everyone has their problems. But I didn’t see him as a threat to anyone.” “That these girls did that to him…it’s heartbreaking. I can’t believe it.”
Toronto Mayor John Tory is “deeply troubled” by the case. Detective Brown says he has never experienced this in his career. “I’ve been working for the police for almost 35 years, and then you think you’ve seen it all,” he told the Associated Press. “Anyone who hasn’t been shocked to hear something like this obviously feels so at peace that something like this could happen in the world. Eight girls and most of them are under the age of 16. If this isn’t disturbing and shocking to everyone, then honestly we are all in trouble.”
known to the police
The eight girls are accused of murder. Just before the fatal stabbing, the girls were said to have been involved in another similar incident. Three of them are already known to the police. The teens will spend their holidays in prison and will have to appear before a magistrate again on December 29.
