Police release photos of suspects wanted in stink bomb blast on TTC

Stink bomb

The hunt is on for a pair of punks who set off a stink bomb on a TTC subway train causing panic during Friday's afternoon rush hour.

The incident, which police are calling a mischief investigation, prompted the Toronto Transit Commission to shut down part of Line 1, from St. George to Union stations, for just under an hour.

The two men identified as suspects were reportedly seen on the southbound platform at St.George subway station shortly before the smell was detected.

While police confirmed the item thrown was a novelty item stink bomb, they allege that the suspects meant to cause a panic within the crowded subway vehicle.

The stink bomb released a sulfur-like smell onto the train, which alarmed subway riders.

Police say that a full emergency response was initiated with the TPS Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive (CBRNE) unit dispatched to the scene, along with paramedics and Toronto Fire's Hazardous Materials Unit.

Police confirmed in a statement they believe the item thrown was a 'novelty stink bomb, ' and that they believe the suspects meant to cause panic.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact them at 416-808-5200, or to call CrimeStoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.
