On the early morning of September 6, 2015, Toronto Police Service responded to a 911 call regarding a stabbing in the Jane and Scarlett Road area, North York. The victim was 23-year-old Russell Sahadeo. He was rushed to Sunnybrook Hospital but later succumbed to his injury.
Sahadeo had no criminal history and no connection to his attacker. He was an innocent victim that had the misfortune of finding himself in Noble Park, down the street from his home, at the wrong time.
The Toronto Police Service investigation has identified two suspects as responsible for this murder. The first suspect turned himself in and subsequently plead guilty in court to manslaughter. The second suspect, Ton Quoc-Hoang Ngo, also known as ‘Tommy Ngo’, remains at large. Ngo is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for second-degree murder.
Tommy is a Toronto resident and of Vietnamese background. He is believed to be in the Greater Toronto Area evading his arrest. He may be driving a late-model dark colour sedan, perhaps a blue Honda Accord. At the time of this offence, Tommy was pre-registered to attend George Brown College in Toronto in Film studies.
Anyone offering Ngo assistance in evading arrest may be considered an accessory after the fact. Section 240 of the Criminal Code of Canada states that “every one who is an accessory after the fact to murder is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for life.”
