Floor stomping set off by loud music leads to stabbing

 

What Happened?

Loud music and a floor-stomping tenant led to a woman being stabbed in an Agnes Street apartment Tuesday night, police said.

Who Got Hurt?

The 36-year-old woman is in stable condition in hospital.

Police said the woman and two men were socializing in a suite while playing loud music around the supper hour.

Why Did this Happen?

A tenant directly above the group took offence to the noise and began jumping on the floor in an attempt to get the partiers to turn down the music. Two men from the party confronted the upstairs tenant, then returned to the downstairs suite, police said.

Then What?

The upstairs tenant pursued the men and forced his way into the lower-level suite with a knife, then stabbed the woman, police said.

Who is the Suspect?

A suspect was arrested near Agnes Street and Wellington Avenue about three hours later.

Who Is He?

A 42-year-old man is facing a charge of assault with a weapon. He was released on a promise to appear in court.  His name was not released.

It’s important to screen tenants.  Like our friends at the Ontario Landlords Forum show, avoid “Tenants From Hell!“.
