Bail hearing set for eight teenage girls charged in death of homeless Toronto man


TORONTO — Eight teenage girls facing second-degree murder charges in the death of a homeless man in Toronto are set to appear for a bail hearing in the new year.

Toronto police have said three 13-year-olds, three 14-year-olds, and two 16-year-olds allegedly swarmed and stabbed a 59-year-old man in the downtown core in mid-December and he later died in hospital.

The identities of the accused cannot be released under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

During a brief court appearance on Thursday, a lawyer for one of the girls requested Crown lawyers disclose a video of the alleged attack posted on the popular online video platform TikTok.

A judge said some of the teens are still in the process of retaining a lawyer so that’s also why the case needs to be put over.

The teens are scheduled to appear for a bail hearing in youth court on Jan. 5, 2023.

Police have said they believe the teens congregated after meeting on social media and are from homes across the Greater Toronto Area.



  1. cold hearts and a failed corrupt law system that gets paid by our crooked government . need I say more for why this will never get any better if it continues to run so obviously corrupt and crooked?

  2. deliberately murdered by young girls

    rub crystal ball

    the courts will blur the responsibility by focusing on it being a crowd attack. nobody will eat the blame

    the courts will go lenient on runny-mascara girls’ sob stories and show little to no compassion for a murdered homeless man

    canadian justice, folks
