45 days in jail for threatening TTC employees

Last Monday, February 11, a TTC janitor at a downtown subway station observed a panhandler behaving aggressively. He was grabbing at passengers, trying to pull them aside. The janitor approached the man and asked him to stop, advising him that the TTC had called the police. The panhandler chased the janitor into the fare collector booth and threatened to kill her. He also threatened to come back and kill the station’s fare collector.

Toronto Police Service and TTC transit enforcement officers arrived on the scene and arrested the man, charging him with two counts of threatening death.

Munir Hudani, 27, pleaded guilty yesterday, Wednesday, February 13 in College Park court and the court sentenced him to 45 days in jail. As a condition of probation, he cannot enter the station where the incident occurred and or any TTC property and cannot board TTC vehicles while under the influence of non-prescription drugs or alcohol for 18 months.

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.
