In one of the more unusual instances of transit vandalism, Toronto police are looking for a young man who hurled a bicycle into the path of an ongoing train at a downtown subway station earlier this month, shutting down service and causing a fire.
Three men, one of them wheeling a bicycle, walked into the Bathurst station May 1 at around 1:15 a.m., police said, The trio headed down to the westbound platform, and shortly before a train pulled in the bicycle was thrown on to the tracks, close to the electrically charged third rail.
A fire ensued, power to the train was cut off and all passengers had to disembark until emergency personnel cleared up the wreckage.
Who the three men are and why the bicycle was destroyed remains a mystery but a good-quality image of them was captured on security video.
All three are white males, believed to be in their 20s.
