Police probing death of cyclist in Little Portugal as suspected homicide

  Police probing death of cyclist in Little Portugal as suspected homicide The death of a male cyclist in Little Portugal early Saturday evening is being investigated as a homicide, Toronto police say. The victim, believed to be in his 20s, was struck by an SUV around 5:30 p.m. in a laneway behind a school at Frankish and Sheridan avenues, near Dundas and Dufferin streets. The cyclist was unconscious, not breathing and witnesses were performing CPR on him when police arrived at the scene. Investigators believe the victim may have been assaulted following what they characterized was an "intentional" crash. The details of that assault are unclear.
