Three people have been arrested in connection with a slashing at Spadina Subway Station.
The incident happened Sunday evening. Toronto police claim an argument sprang up between a woman and three young people.
It is alleged that a boy spat in the woman’s face and repeatedly pushed her.
He eventually pulled out a knife and slashed her in the face before running away.
On Monday, police were called about a suspicious incident near Long Branch Avenue and Lake Promenade.
They say an officer was investigating a boy in the stairwell of an apartment building.
The boy tried to flee and alerted another boy and girl.
At one point, one of the boys allegedly swung a machete at the officer.
The three were arrested and later linked to the Spadina Station incident the day before.
A 16-year-old boy, a 15-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl are facing various charges. All have been charged with assault with a weapon (two counts).
