Still thinking of not doing proper tenant screening?

Still think credit, employment and criminal background checks aren’t worth the cost?

A Toronto man is charged with attempted murder after a landlord was attacked with an axe Friday morning.

Police were called to Dundas St. W. and Bloor St. W. just before 9 a.m.

Police spokesman Tony Vella said the landlord attempted to collect monthly rent from a tenant who “unprovoked, assaulted him with the axe, hitting the victim a number of times over the head.”

The landlord was sent to hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries.

Rallin Edward Lawes, 64, is scheduled to appear in court at Old City Hall on Saturday.
