Just hours after allegedly committing a heinous crime against a visually impaired citizen, a 22-year-old man was arrested by police.

On April 25, the 57-year-old man's throat was cut, and his wallet and white mobility cane stolen, after he exited a TTC bus near Morningside Ave. and Beath St. in Scarborough.

The suspect fled the scene, leaving the man without his mobility cane to get home.

Emilio Georgiev, of Mississauga, was arrested the same day.

“We executed a search warrant at a home in Scarborough where he was,” said Detective Eric Rowlands, of 43 Division. “This was a pretty vicious incident and we are glad that we apprehended our suspect a short time later.”

Georgiev is facing robbery, causing bodily harm and failing to comply with recognizance charges.

Rowlands said the victim is expected to make a full recovery.
