3 women seriously injured after assault in Mississauga, suspect found dead

Peel Regional Police say three women have been seriously injured after an assault in Mississauga Monday night. The suspect was later found deceased.

Const. Akhil Mooken told Global News emergency crews were called to the area of Ponytail Drive and Burnhamthorpe Road East, near the Etobicoke Creek, just before 10:20 p.m. with reports the victims were injured by someone known to them. It wasn’t clear how the victims and the suspect knew each other.

The women, who are all known to each other, were taken to a hospital by paramedics with serious but non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Mooken said police were told the suspect was armed and took off, prompting officers and members of the canine unit to respond.
