Toronto police have released a photo of a man wanted in a bomb threat investigation.

On Sunday, August 13, just before 2 pm, police responded to a call regarding a bomb threat at Bloor-Yonge subway station.

According to police, the man was on a crowded, southbound Yonge line train when he allegedly announced to other passengers that he had a bomb and that he would blow up the train.

Police say this “forced the evacuation of the train in an unsafe manner.”

The suspect was seen leaving the station in the midst of the crowd. Police have released his photo and are asking anyone with information to contact them.

Anyone with information on the incident or the man in question is asked to contact 416-808-5100, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online, or text TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637).
