Moses Lewin, 25, of Toronto, has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, and two counts of failing to comply with a release order, Toronto police said.
Lewin is accused of stabbing a man in his 30s following a heated argument on a southbound Line 1 train near Eglinton Subway Station around noon on Thursday. The man was taken to the hospital in life-threatening condition but is now stable, according to police.
A graphic video shows the two men physically beating each other on the train, which escalated into Lewin pulling out a knife. After pulling out the knife, Lewin chased the other male to one end of the subway and stabbed the victim several times before fleeing, police said.
Lewin was arrested and taken into custody on Friday. Toronto police issued a suspect description, along with surevillance video images, following the incident which led to the arrest.
Transit riders told CBC News that they were "left shaken" by the incident, which follows the fatal stabbing of a 16-year-old girl in March during an unprovoked attack at Keele Station. The teenager, identified as Gabriel Magalhaes, was reportedly sitting on a bench in the lower level of the subway when he was approached and attacked.
Megalhaes suffered life-threatening injuries and later passed away in the hospital. The suspect, 22-year-old Jordan O'Brien-Tolbin, was later arrested and charged with first-degree murder.
