Four teens charged in stabbing death of 63-year-old man in Brampton, Ont.


MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Police say they’ve charged four Toronto teenagers in connection with the summer stabbing death of a 63-year-old man in Brampton, Ont.

Peel Regional Police say a group of five males were allegedly breaking into cars in the area around 2:20 a.m. on Aug. 2 when they began going through a car at Glensbert Oliver’s home.

Insp. Michael Pulley says Oliver and his son went outside their home and confronted the group.

They say both Oliver and his son were stabbed, with the father dying at the scene while his son was sent to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Pulley says officers raided four homes on Thursday where they made the four arrests. Police are still searching for a fifth suspect.

A 16-year-old boy has been charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder, while a 17-year-old boy and two 18-year-old men face possession of property obtained under crime charges.
