Police investigate stabbings in separate incidents

A love triangle is believed to have prompted an attack in Scarborough that left a woman in critical condition in hospital last night.
Homicide investigators were on standby after a man was found across the street from a Scarborough police station with an unconscious woman lying by his side early yesterday morning.
A 45-year-old man was taken into custody.
A report from CTV News said the woman is 22 years old and a mother of three children, aged 3, 2 and 11 months.
Police believe the suspect confronted the woman at the Roycroft motel in Scarborough where she was with another man. Police said the suspect allegedly slashed the other man with a knife and then dragged the woman to his van and drove her to an apartment building across the street from the police station, near Birchmount Road and Eglinton Avenue. The other man was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The woman is believed to have been both beaten and stabbed.
In a separate incident, police responded to a fatal stabbing just south of the East York Town Centre yesterday morning. They received an emergency call around 7: 15 a.m.
When they arrived, officers found a man without vital signs who had been stabbed several times while in the parking lot of an apartment building.
He and a man he knew had gotten into a verbal argument that police say quickly escalated into Engin YILMAZ getting stabbed. Mr. YILMAZ, who lived in the building, was taken to hospital, where he died.
After a short investigation by homicide detectives, Hikmet DASDEMIR surrendered to police in 53 Division last night. The 35-year-old has been charged with second-degree murder.

Three stabbings in 24 hours push year's homicides to 54
By Timothy APPLEBY, Page A10
Three unrelated fatal stabbings in less than 24 hours have pushed Toronto's homicide tally for 2007 to 54, putting the city on track for an unusually high total by year's end.
In 2005, when an epidemic of gun violence gripped many of the city's low-income neighbourhoods, 70 homicides were recorded, 52 involving firearms.
But as of August 25, 2005, 48 killings had taken place - six fewer than the total so far this year.
The most recent victim was a 22-year-old mother of three who died of head injuries yesterday after she was found beaten, stabbed and unconscious Wednesday morning in an Eglinton Avenue East parking lot across from a Scarborough police station.
Detectives reportedly believe the unidentified woman was killed after her 38-year-old partner found her at the Roycroft motel with another man, who was also allegedly attacked.
The 45-year-old suspect appeared in court yesterday morning charged with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of aggravated assault as well as weapons charges.
The woman's subsequent death likely means a charge of murder is now pending.
At around the same time on Wednesday morning, the homicide squad was called to the parking lot of an East York apartment building near Overlea Boulevard and Thorncliffe Park Drive, where Engin YILMAZ, 34, was found stabbed to death.
Police said Mr. YILMAZ's killing was precipitated by a verbal argument with his roommate that then escalated. Charged with second-degree murder is Hikmet DASDEMIR, 35, who turned himself in a few hours later.
And shortly before midnight on Wednesday night, on the other side of the city, a 20-year-old man was found stabbed to death in a west-end park.
The unidentified victim was discovered in the Kiwanis Trees of Honour East Mall Park, near The East Mall and Burnhamthorpe Road.
He was pronounced dead at Saint Michael's Hospital.
No arrests have been made in that slaying.
