Man dies after being hospitalized in Scarborough assault – .


A 37-year-old man who was hospitalized following an assault in Scarborough last month has succumbed to his injuries, leading to manslaughter charges against a suspect.

Police said a group of people were near the Bluffer’s Park boat launch near Brimley Road around 8 a.m. on July 19 when a physical altercation erupted between two men.

Following the altercation, one of the men went to hospital with a serious head injury.

The next day Nathan Hill, a 37-year-old Torontonian, was taken into custody in connection with the incident. He was charged with aggravated assault.

Police confirmed on Sunday that the victim, identified as Steven Mitchell, died in hospital on July 30 just before midnight.

The charges against Hill have since been turned into manslaughter.

“This remains an active investigation,” police said in a press release issued in the early afternoon.

“Police are calling on the public to come forward if they were in the Bluffers Park or Marina area between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. on Monday, July 19, 2021.”

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the police or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously.
