Police say the incident began when a man and a girl were denied entry to a private party being held at the address, which houses the Theta Delta Chi fraternity at the University of Toronto.

The two allegedly forced their way into house, slashing and stabbing people inside, as well as outside as they left.

Five people were injured, including one with life-threatening injuries, police say.

One suspect was reportedly arrested in the area about an hour after police arrived and a second was arrested later in the early hours of Nov. 1.

Jacob Alves, 19, of no fixed address, and a 15-year-old girl, of Richmond Hill, each face three charges of aggravated assault, three counts of assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and attempted murder.

They are scheduled to appear separately in court on Nov.1.

The investigation of the stabbing is ongoing, police say.
