Police say a man has been arrested after he allegedly set a woman on fire in Toronto’s west end.
Investigators say they were called to the area of Kipling Avenue and Dundas Street West shortly before 12:30 p.m. for reports of an assault.
They allege a man poured a liquid substance on a woman and then lit the liquid on fire.
Police say the woman was rushed to hospital.
The Toronto Transit Commission says subway service between Kipling and Islington stations was halted due to a security incident.
The commission’s CEO, Rick Leary, says the organization is “shocked” by the alleged attack at Kipling station.
“I know incidents like this are concerning for our customers — and I share that concern,” he said in a statement.
“Safety is paramount to all we do and I am committed to ensuring the TTC remains as safe as possible.”
