Toronto Man Charged In Fatal Stabbing Of South Asian Teen

TORONTO – An 18-year-old Toronto man has been charged with second-degree murder after a double stabbing that left a South Asian teen dead and another critically injured in the parking lot of Canada’s Wonderland.

The incident occurred just after 12:30 a.m. on Oct. 26. After receiving calls for a person with a weapon, York Regional Police arrived at the parking lot on Jane St. in Vaughan to find two men with stab wounds, reported the Star.

Kevin Ramkalawan, 21, of Toronto was pronounced dead at the scene.

The other victim, an 18-year-old Toronto man, was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries. He has been charged in the case, said York police Const. Andy Pattenden.

David Ayodeji-Dinnall faces a second-degree murder charge and was to appear in Newmarket court on Thursday.

No information about what led to the incident is being released as the investigation is still open, Pattenden said.

After the incident, police had said they believed the stabbing was sparked by a fight that began inside the park and moved to the parking lot.

Police said multiple people were stabbed, but only Ramkalawan and the second man were on the scene when officers arrived.

On Oct. 30, police put out a plea for the public’s assistance in locating a person of interest in the case. That man — described as black, wearing a black track suit with an Aeropostale hoodie — was captured by a security camera in the area shortly after the incident.

Police could not confirm whether or not that person was located.
