Woman dies after being assaulted in city center

A woman is dead and a man is in custody following a reported assault in downtown Toronto, police say.

Toronto police say they received reports of a man assaulting a woman at the northeast corner of Yonge and King streets at 11:39 a.m.

There were initial reports that the woman fell, but later reports that she was pushed, police said.

They said the man fled and the woman has since died.

Paramedics responded to the scene, but did not transport anyone, Toronto Paramedic Service said.

At 1 p.m. Police said they were looking for a suspect and issued a description of a man believed to be in his 40s. A little more than an hour later, around 2:15, they said they had a suspect in custody.

The event generated a heavy police presence in the area and officers cordoned off a long stretch of Yonge Street while they investigated.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 9-1-1.
