Eight teen girls charged with killing homeless man in Toronto: police


Eight teen young ladies who met through web-based entertainment were accused of the homicide of a vagrant in Toronto on Sunday, police said.

The group of three 13-year-olds, three 14-year-olds and two 16-year-olds amassed their 59-year-old casualty at a court close to the fundamental rail station soon after 12 PM Dec. 18, the Toronto Police Administration reported.


Observers that saw the young ladies wounding the man at York Road and College Road waved to EMS, who moved the casualty to a close by clinic.

The person in question, who had been living in the city’s sanctuary framework for quite a long time, died from his wounds, Analyst Sergeant Terry Browne said at a Tuesday question and answer session.

The teens were found close to the scene conveying “various weapons,” Browne uncovered.

The gathering of young ladies — whose personalities are safeguarded under Canada’s Childhood Law enforcement Act — may have gone out determined to create problems. Police said the teens were associated with one more fight around two hours before they supposedly killed the vagrant.

“What they are claimed to have happened that night would be steady with what we generally call an amassing or amassing type conduct,” Browne said. Three of the teens have a set of experiences with police, Browne said.

The young ladies live in differing portions of Toronto and met through online entertainment, however police don’t yet have any idea how long they’ve known one another.

Authorities are as yet examining the reason why they met nearby and what their arrangements for the night might have been.

Each of the eight young ladies have been accused of second-degree murder. They were remanded into guardianship and are booked to show up again toward the month’s end.
