A mother and a 17-year-old girl have both been taken to a trauma centre with serious injuries after a violent incident took place at a Scarborough apartment building on Friday night.

Emergency crews were called to the area of Danforth and McCowan roads at around 6:40 p.m. for unknown trouble.

Officers from 43 Division found a 17-year-old girl without vital signs and with stab wounds to her upper body. She was rushed to SickKids hospital in life-threatening condition, according to paramedics. 

Toronto paramedics said the girl was taken from the scene to a pediatric hospital via emergency run in life-threatening condition after suffering multiple stab wounds.

The mother, who is believed to be in her 30s, was also taken to a trauma centre. She suffered serious injuries after being struck in the head several times, police said.

Neighbours called 911 around 6 p.m. after they heard an attack inside a residence in the area of Danforth and McCowan roads, near Lawrence Avenue East, Toronto police say. 

It sounds like there was an attack in an apartment and it led to some good neighbours hearing what was going on and calling 911, Det. Jason Hiller said while speaking to reporters at the scene.

Its been a pretty hectic scene. We had the perimetre up and even though the perimetre is down were still actively looking for the suspect.

Investigators are searching for a man, between age 35 and 40, around 5'9", wearing a white jacket and possibly without shoes. 

A suspect described by officers as a five-foot-nine male, who was wearing a white jacket at the time, is wanted in connection with this investigation. Officer said it is unclear at this point if the male suspect is related to the victims.

He was last seen in the building, in the residential area, north of Trudelle Street by McCowan Road, Toronto police spokesperson Katrina Arrogante told CP24. We are hoping to have the publics assistance in perhaps locating him.

We dont have confirmation of the relationship at this point we are still under the investigation and trying to get more information.
