Nine years in jail for stabbing TTC worker

Almost three and a half years ago, Thursday, September 17, 2010, a man boarded a TTC bus with an invalid transfer near Brimley Road and Steeles Avenue East. When the operator refused to accept the transfer, the man became enraged and removed a knife from his backpack, stabbing the driver three times on his leg and hand.

The suspect fled the scene, but Toronto Police Service officers arrested him the next day and charged him with attempted murder, aggravated assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon and carrying a concealed weapon. A close-circuit television (CCTV) camera on board the bus captured the assault and the video was presented as evidence in court. The man was convicted of aggravated assault in March 2012.

Last week, Friday, February 21, a court sentenced Wei Yang, 43, to nine years in prison and slapped him with an additional 10-year long-term supervision order after he serves his prison sentence.

On average, at least two TTC employees are assaulted every day. The assaults range from punching, slapping and spitting, to threatening physical harm or death. The TTC’s court advocates work with Crown attorneys and the courts to secure the stiffest penalties possible for those convicted of assaulting or threatening TTC employees. They continue to seek ways to restrict those convicted of these crimes from using public transit in Toronto.
