Police have identified a man killed in an alleged "swarming" attack by eight teenage girls in Toronto last month as Ken Lee. Lee, 59, was pronounced dead in hospital after he was allegedly beaten and stabbed by the group of girls outside a downtown shelter in the early morning hours of Dec. 18, 2022.
[...]A friend of Lee's who saw his alleged attack previously told CBC Toronto the girls had tried to take a liquor bottle from her and Lee had tried to stop them. The lead detective on the case later confirmed that police believe there was an attempted theft — "likely of a liquor bottle" — during the initial phase of the deadly encounter.
The teenage murderers are between 13 and 16 years old. No information about race is provided which means we know.
