Suspect arrested in fatal stabbing of man celebrating Raptors win

As the group attempted to chase down the suspect, the victim staggered into a nearby alleyway and collapsed.

Tyquan Brown was taken to hospital with a “significant stab wound” to his upper body, where he was pronounced dead.

Police recovered the car the suspect used to flee the scene approximately five kilometres from the crime scene near Bayfront Park. A knife was also recovered but police have not said if it is the murder weapon.

Police issued a warrant for their suspect, and arrested the man as he was getting into a taxi on Saturday afternoon. Duarte is scheduled to appear in court Sunday morning in Hamilton.

I’ve reached the conclusion “it’s too late to save Canada” ……….. In too many cases She’s been infiltrated and taken over by the ungrateful rejects from around the world in that successfully destroyed the things that made the nation great ………………..and brought her down like whipping a rented mule. Talk about biting the hand that feeds ya.

Yep he’s your classic bleeding heart conservative yahoo complaining about everything yet doing nothing to help the situation other than the usual- deport them all – what a joke

Police have arrested Dylon Moniz Duarte for the death of Tyquan Brown, who was fatally stabbed while celebrating the Toronto Raptors' game one win of the NBA finals Friday.

Brown, 23, was with a group of friends outside a home on Sherman Avenue North around 12:30 a.m. when police say Duarte showed up and stabbed him because he was unhappy an ex-girlfriend was hanging out with the basketball fans.

"This male confronted the group over a female who was partying with them, and all of a sudden produced a knife and stabbed a 23-year-old male who was part of the group," Det. Sgt. Peter Thom told reporters at the scene Friday morning.

Investigators say Brown's friends chased Duarte while Brown wandered down the street and collapsed in an alley north of Barton Street East. He later died at Hamilton General Hospital.

A GoFundMe campaign set up by a woman named Tessa Ambrose says Brown was working in construction and describes his death as a "devastating tragedy."

"He was greatly intelligent, thoughtful and hilariously comical," the campaign reads. "His spirit not only lifted people up, but inspired them to take on the same perspective."

A first-degree murder warrant was issued for Duarte and police say he was arrested around 3 p.m. Saturday while getting into a cab near the corner of Grandville and Delawana Avenues.

Police say the murder weapon has not been recovered. They're continuing their investigation and say detectives will be gathering surveillance footage from the scene in the coming days.

"Investigators wish to acknowledge the assistance they received from the many witnesses, both at the scene of the murder and where the get-away car was dumped," the service stated in a media release. "Their evidence was crucial in solving this case."
