Three teenage females with “high risk lifestyles” are wanted in connection with a brutal attack on a Mississauga man that led to his death several days later.

According to police, on Friday, April 28 shortly after 2:30 a.m., the victim arrived at the Pioneer Gas Station on Upper Centennial Parkway in Hamilton covered in blood and suffering from life-threatening injuries.

Police say the man was able to ask a bystander to call 9-1-1 and was promptly transported to hospital in critical condition.

On April 30, police announced that the victim, 33-year-old Hayder Qasim-Rushdi, had died.

On May 2, members of the Homicide Unit executed a search warrant at a residence on the Hamilton Mountain.

After obtaining forensic evidence and interviewing people across the GTA, warrants were sworn for the arrest of three 17-year-old girls.

It is believed that they were working as escorts and their contact with the victim was based on this type of relationship.

The victim was stabbed with a knife, which has been recovered.

Qasim-Rushdi’s vehicle is undergoing extensive forensic analysis.

Police have reached out to family members and police in London and the GTA for assistance in locating the three females; as their safety is also a concern due to what police call their “high risk lifestyle.”
