Toronto police are investigating whether a man struck and killed by a train at Yonge/Bloor subway station Monday morning was pushed.

The victim, who was in his early 20s, was on the eastbound platform and about to get on to the oncoming train when he was struck, homicide Det. Rob North said at a news conference.

Police are looking into whether the victim was pushed or stumbled.

Police arrested a man in his 40s but haven’t charged him. He had left the station but was arrested nearby, North said.
