Blood spots and police tape encircled the building where a 22-year-old woman was slashed and beaten almost to death after an apparent love triangle turned violent yesterday.
The victim is in critical condition in hospital with life-threatening head injuries, police say. Her 37-year-old boyfriend, father of her 11-month-old child, is in police custody.
Early yesterday morning, the suspect allegedly caught the woman at the nearby Roycroft Motel with another man. The woman’s other partner was slashed in the abdomen and face, but was not seriously injured. He returned to his Scarborough home and was later escorted to hospital.
