A woman has died of her injuries after being attacked by a man wielding a machete near a home in eastern Toronto, police say. 

The shocking attack, witnessed by several people in the Scarborough neighbourhood of Morrish and Ellesmere roads, happened around 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday evening.

“The initial reports were there was some guy running around on the street wielding a machete and he struck a woman repeatedly, knocking her to the ground,” said Const. David Hopkinson, spokesperson for the Toronto Police Service. 

“Her injuries were very, very bad. She succumbed to her injuries on scene.”

Insp. Stacey Davis told reporters the male suspect involved in the attack drove to the nearby 42 Division police station and turned himself in after the attack. He and the victim had a “previous domestic relationship,” Davis said.

The homicide unit is now investigating, police say.

Investigators say both the suspect and victim, whose identity has not been released at this time, are in their 30s.
