Toronto police are searching for a man wanted in connection with the city’s first homicide of the year and are asking for the public’s help.
Police say a 25-year-old American man, Mohamed Jeylani, of Minnesota, was stabbed to death in Scarborough on Jan. 13.
Emergency crews were called to a residential building in the area of Eglinton Avenue East and Midland Avenue at about 5:10 p.m. last Wednesday.

On Sunday, police identified 24-year-old Guled Mohamad as a suspect and released a photo of the Toronto man.
He is wanted for second-degree murder.
