The Bloor-Yonge subway station was evacuated briefly at the peak of the Friday morning rush hour after police say a stolen suitcase was thrown on the tracks.
The subway was closed between Eglinton and Union stations on Line 1, and St. George and Broadview stations on Line 2, at around 8:30 a.m.
Police said the evacuation occurred after a man stole a suitcase and threw it onto the tracks.
The incident was reported as suspicious and a potential threat to public safety.
Police said they have retrieved the suitcase and are “reuniting it with [the] rightful owner.”
The subway was up and running again at around 8:50 a.m., about 20 minutes after the confusion began.
