Woman dead after unprovoked assault in downtown Toronto, police say
An elderly woman is dead after what police say was an unprovoked assault in Toronto's downtown core on Friday, Toronto police say.
I live in this area. There are so many people with mental illness roaming the streets it’s really concerning. Today alone I encountered people screaming, this poor guy who seems to be developmentally delayed just playing with Pokémon cards just sitting right on the corner. I don’t know what the solution is, but something needs to change . People need help.
