Peel police shooting in Brampton

A 16-year-old Mississauga boy is facing charges in connection with a dinner hour stabbing on Wednesday (April 19) that police believe stemmed from a road rage incident moments earlier.

Peel Regional Police say the teen turned himself in to authorities on Thursday. He’s charged with aggravated assault in relation to the attack, which took place at about 6:30 p.m. in a plaza parking lot at Eglinton Ave. W. and Ridgeway Dr. in west Erin Mills.

According to police, they responded to several 911 calls that a man had been stabbed. He was taken to hospital with injuries not considered to be life-threatening.

Police say the stabbing occurred shortly after “a brief road rage incident in the parking lot.”

The teen, who cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, was held for a bail hearing and made a brief appearance in Brampton court.
