Toronto Police have arrested a suspect in an alleged hit and run last Friday in the busy intersection of Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue.

Police had been pursuing a suspect in a stolen car when the driver mounted the sidewalk, striking three pedestrians and sending one to hospital with minor injuries.

The suspect, who allegedly tried to hit a police officer before driving onto the sidewalk, later ditched the vehicle and fled on foot.

A 47-year-old man was arrested at about 3 a.m. Thursday in the city’s north end (near Sheppard and Bathurst) after police received a tip he was in the area.

Officers spotted him in a truck and the suspect was arrested following a short chase on foot.

Steven Paul Brunswick is facing charges of attempted murder, vehicle theft and dangerous driving.
