A man has been arrested after a violent axe assault in the city’s west end, Toronto police said Friday.

Police say the assault occurred Friday morning, shortly before 10 a.m., when a landlord went to pick up a rent cheque at an address near Dundas Street West and Bloor Street West.

The tenant let the landlord in and then allegedly attacked him by swinging an axe overhead several times, said Toronto police spokesperson Tony Vella.

The landlord was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Vella said the victim is fortunate to be alive and is recovering in hospital.

Rallin Edward Lawes, 64, of Toronto, has been charged with one count of attempted murder.

He will appear in court at Old City Hall Saturday morning.
