A 30-year-old man is now sought for slashing another man’s throat in the city’s west end last month.

Toronto Police say the victim, 27, was at a residence near Weston Rd. and Black Creek Dr. when he was attacked around 9:15 p.m. on Jan. 15.

“Another man, with whom he was acquainted, was also in the unit,” Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook said Tuesday. “For reasons unknown, the acquaintance approached the man with a knife and slashed his throat.”

She said the victim was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Investigators have now identified Andy Metatawabin as a suspect in the violence.
