According to Toronto Police, on December 5, 2016, they responded to a call around 6 pm that there was a trespasser in the area of Queen East and Yonge.

It is alleged that:

  • a man entered the building
  • he became very aggressive with people inside
  • he made death threats to security when he was asked to leave
  • as he left, he pushed a passerby with such force that the man fell into the roadway

The next day, 26-year-old Torontonian Johnathan Rushford was arrested and charged with:

1) Uttering Threats
2) Assault
3) Obstruct Police
4) Fail to Comply Probation

However, police have yet to find the victim that Rushford shoved dangerously into the road and they believe he may have suffered a serious injury. As such, they have released security camera footage in hopes that the victim can be identified. Please watch and share.
