Peel Regional Police posted an image of the two male suspects on Twitter, wearing dark zip-up hoodies and their faces mostly covered. One appeared to be carrying an object in his right hand.

The attack in Mississauga, Canada’s sixth largest city, comes a month after 10 people were killed in Toronto when a man drove his rented van into a lunch-hour crowd on a busy street. Fifteen others were injured.
