He was rushed to hospital in serious but non-life threatening condition.

A male suspect fled the scene and was last seen running eastbound on Bloor Street, police said. 

He is described as being in his 20s, with a medium build, and wearing a blue mask and a black jacket with his hood up.

It is unknown if the victim and suspect know each other, according to police.  

Investigators said they are in the process of viewing video surveillance from the bus. 

Anyone with information is being asked to contact police at 416-808-2222 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.

“As always, we’ll give police our full support as they investigate, including video and witness statements. The TTC has no further information at this time,” the transit agency tweeted. 

The incident is the second stabbing in two days on the city’s transit system since Saturday.
