The woman suspected of what Toronto police officials are calling a random act of violence, has been apprehended, according to reports.
ABC reports that the woman has been identified as 40-year-old Rohinie Bisesar and is finally in police custody after four days of eluding officers.
According to Toronto police spokesman, David Hopkinson, the suspect Bisesar has no record.
“She’s very well educated; she has no criminal record. It’s out of the blue,” he said.
Before finding the suspect, police had asked for the public’s help in locating her after they released photos of her along with her name, warning individuals not to approach her, as she was deemed “armed and dangerous.”

Bisesar is accused of stabbing a shopper on Dec. 11 at a drug store in Toronto. As far as police know, she did not know the individual. The incident left the victim with life-threatening injuries, and described as being in “grave” condition as the stab wound punctured a “vital organ.”
According to CBS, Bisesar received her MBA in 2007 and, as her LinkedIn outlines, has worked at York University – where she received her degree – in multiple positions between 1999 and 2007.
Bisesar was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon at her hearing on Wednesday, which she arrived early to, ABC report.
Police have said additional charges will be brought against Besisar if the victim dies.
